In all its pantographed glory over on the for sale pages, before it gets buried in yet another 'sorry modern content' sale....

This is exactly the chainset I had in mind to build up the Pug-esque "Donnay" carbon frame that I've just sold. I was going to add Simplex DT shifters, Campag monoplanar calipers and Modolo levers to get all those cool late 80s/early 90s curves going on together.

It finally dawned on me that the frame was too small, so what's the point building up a bike that you physically can't ride ... :roll:

I reckon you've got an amazing loft! You reach into it and pull these out, the next hand grabs that lovely Campag Shamal, the one beside those large flange hubs...

Wish I had a loft like that :(

Tres jolie.

BTW, your avatar has fallen over. From memory that means I am desperately holding onto the fence trying not to fall into the woods.

Much better, although the blood is rushing to my head now.
