old 1220 came with a wheel that fit 7 speeds, not 8. So maybe it is a replacement wheel, otherwise, 8 speed is not going to fit. Measure it: 6/7 speed are 126mm, 8/9/10 are 130mm wide on road bikes.
I have found barcons to be extremely reliable.
7 speed STI are rebuildable and have good value (once functional). Guy on facebook does them for all over the world.
