Hello from Tokyo. I'm a new convert to cycling in general and to Campagnolo parts in particular. I've been riding a 1982 Dawes for the past 4 years, the first bike that's ever made me go, 'Wow! This is fun.'
In the past few weeks I've become enamoured of 1970s steel frame bikes and bought 2 Trex frames (a 78 and an 82, both 700 series), a 1976 Mercian frame and a 1978 Woodrup bicycle with a complete Nuovo Record groupset plus a complete Super Record groupset that I intend to fit to the frames I've bought, one after the other, in order to find out what they ride like.
The thing is, I can't find out what the difference between Nuovo Record and Super Record parts is. At the time, was one better and/or more expensive than the other, or was it just a case of them being designed for different applications... like touring and racing?
I'm sure someone here can cast light on this... I'd be very grateful for any info.
