Guess many won't consider this worthy for discussion on retrobike. In road terms this is certainly a modern gruppo, heck I was running it on my good road iron until the start of 08.

Still it deserves a good home. Currenly on my Pin > http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=67063 . Which is quite possibly a sin against the retro Gods. Japanese kit on an Italian frame maybe ok for the pros but for a rank amateur like me :lol:

Anyhow the Pin is going to get sprayed at some point and I'll have to complete that Campagnolo (see how careful i wa there :wink: ) groupset.

Which brings me to the point of this post. What to do with the Dura Ace. At one point I had a very nice Steelman (link >http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=48506) which was sadly too small. Was thinking along the lines of a late 90s tigged stell frame. Serotta, Raleigh 853 or similar. Then I already have 5 other steel road bikes/frames. So maybe something else, probably not euro. A Trek OCLV in USPS colours would be iconic and certainly divide opinion. That said I had a very early OCLV which was sold quite quickly, one 45 mph 'speed wobble' can be forgiven, two can't. A Trek/Klein Quantum Pro might also be interesting (and it would have to be a Pro).

So what do you reckon. any other suggestions?

I think it needs to go on something like this:

You could fit some nice 8 spd Campagnolo to your Pinarello :)

I'm afraid my vote didn't settle anything - each option is at 33% w/ the 3 votes. I still maintain that the Klein Quantum Pro is the way to go and if I'm not mistaken, there's a NOS Quantum Pro 1999-2000ish for sale around here somewhere for 450euros or something like that. Looking forward to seeing the result whichever way you go.

:lol: I'm not even at the game when it comes to being a serious collector. No need to sell anything for the time being fortunately!

I think seeing all the Kleins appearing has sucked me in! Sadly the one in the classifieds is too small otherwise would've given it some serious thought.

Looks like I've just evened things up again by going for the Trek.
