    Paint restoration

    I'm working on an old classic now with the remains of a decent paint job. The bike was left out in the weather and generally has spots of 40-old year old grime and crud baked on. I'm loth to use...

    Not quite. Both had the same tube set. The difference was the groups built on them. Experts tended to be 105/GPX, where Masters were 600.

    It's 5PM, dark, and snowing.
    40MPH winds.
    I can look forward to building and selling BSOs until the thaw in April.

    FWIW, my Super Corsa (TDF frameset w/Campy dropouts) is the nicest riding of all the bikes in the garage. If I were restricted to one road bike that would be it.
