I'm a huge fan. They helped me out when I was racing and running a team. We ran Rascals at the time because they were the Kleins that could be adapted for suspension forks. And they were great! I still have mine from 1991, and it still rocks (but I keep it at my mother-in-law's house in Arizona).
I found a really nice 1987 Chorus last year, same color (ultraviolet) as my mountain bike, and found out what I was missing. You are right, if I were to lose my mind and race another criterium, that'd be the bike that I would pull down. Like riding a scalpel, but certainly not as comfortable as the SL Pinarello.
