Fabulous, real piece of history.

Just love those Campagnolo Paris-Roubaix rear mechs. The idea of loosening your rear wheel deliberately to change gear - especially while climbing - seems quite alarming to me. How is it in practice?

And integrated headsets are nothing new are they!

Is that your L'Eroica number?
