WheelsCampagnolo Record large-flange hubs 36/36 with 27" Mavic HP rims
ChainsetCampagnolo Record double, 151 BCD

BrakesUniversal 68 brakeset
Stem/BarsUniversal 68 brakeset
SaddleBrooks Professional on Campagnolo seatpost
Extra detailsThe frame, in common (I'm told), with many sixties frames has no braze-ons whatsoever, which is a good excuse to use lots of lovely Campa guides. The stays are extremely chunky. It does ride better than anything else I have, arrow straight, very stable and feels quick but not twitchy. That may be down to the rim and tyre combination (my latest pet theory is that the feel of a bike is determined more by the wheels than anything else).
Thanks for reading
