I'd prefer the red turbo. It's red and it's italian like the rest of all your bike ....

Would it be OTT to fit red cables - Campag do a set

It's the only colour I'd fit to that gorgeous looking frame.

Looking good; I'd go with red cables as the white probably wouldn't match and so would jar.

You need to match the reds though; if the reds dont match maybe consider black.

That's just your age, Clive! :lol: :lol:

Looks bloody lovely! Wish I'd gone for pearl white for the Jackson now :roll: :facepalm:

Still, maybe Chas can get the look instead.

I'd always go Shimano, but that's just me. It will look super either way! 8)

Thanks guys.
The thing about pearl white Mike is that it will need work to keep clean. I am chuffed with it though.

I was toying with DA7400 8 speed as I have a nearly complete group but Ive ended up stripping an existing bike down for the 9 speed Campag. It’s not going to be Eroica compatible, more a mid 90s classic for sunny days.
