An old guy in my street was selling his old Mercx, with a Campag Nuovo Record groupset. It was in mint condition: he'd only ridden it twice, then stored it in his attic.
It was old and dusty, so I wasn't really interested. Anyway, he spent the day cleaning and polishing it, and fitting new tubs and bartape. I had another look but it was still kind of heavy and didn't have STI levers or any carbon.
Thing is, the old guy was really persistent, so in the end we came to an agreement, and he gave me £50 to take it away
your point being?
