Thanks for the kind comments on my little :wink: bike

Any thoughts on the rear mech - would Super Record or Dura Ace 7400 be so wrong as not fancying my chances of finding a good condition graphite finish CdA?

mmm... not quite but nearly? Until a graphite one turns up?

could be expensive though:

Dura-ace would be so wrong. Super Record less so.

That bike deserves a graphite mech.

I remember BITD thinking that graphite Campagnolo stuff was so ugly :oops: Thankfully my tastes have matured.

Yep :roll:

That last would not double the price of Eds bike, but it would soak up a very substantial amount of the final investment than. I would say the mech qualitywise qualifies though. The Athena mech doesn't ..and it still costs 85 euros :roll:

Think you need some luck with encountering something decent, Ed. Imho not necessarily Graphite, but period correct Chorus, CdA or Record anyway.

Hmm, if graphite mechs are such strong money I'll definitely be giving them a miss :shock:

Perhaps I should look to swap out all the graphite stuff for the equivalent in silver or, more sensibly, just ride it as it is.

It would be a shame to split it up but what about flogging the good condition Graphite stuff for silver Record?

Those Deltas would make a premium over silver:

Ride it ...maybe with a few tweaks

Don't worry Melvin, the aero levers are yours if I do make a change but I reckon you're right, stop jibber jabbering and just ride it!
