Ok, here's another.

Mercian 753, Campag Super/Record throughout bar Simplex Retrofriction gear levers and a Superbe Pro front mech (when I asked why I was told that it was the front mech that worked best at the time).

Two reasons:

1) they are great

2) there are a lot of them

Not to mention the rear mech !

I must say of all kit I've laying around Superbe is absolutely among the most impressive. The rear mech, so refined, so ridiculously light, so great functioning - :shock:

Wow those last two are very amazing, but the Molteni especially so!

How do you ride the Somec without pedals? Don't you worry about water and other stuff getting into teh frame through the bottle cage mounts without screws?

Apart from these pet peeves of mine, a beautiful bike, just like virtually all the others this month.
