You can find a lot of nice C record era components without getting robbed for deltas; Athena or Chorus are excellent choices also...
The missus has a lovely Chorus group on this:http://www.flickr.com/photos/51987088@N ... 626193983/
I replaced the campag brake levers with Shimano as they are easier to get a grip and feel for small hands.
Yeah, I agree, in fact, weren't the 2nd gen SR calipers part of the Record group during before or after the Deltas?
Athena and Chorus calipers are things of beauty.
I like the mix on your partner's Master, Chorus rear, Record crank & NR calipers though the Shimano levers do tend to stand out. Weren't the Corsa levers a better choice for the smaller mitts?
