    I'm assuming the reference is to modern rings being 'ramped and pinned'.

    ^ Yup. You can find Campy, Suntour, etc., versions too...but not always cheaply or easily.

    I wouldn't hesitate to use the Problem Solvers, myself.

    Very nice. A bit more 'relaxed' (Audax?) geometry than my '84 Professional.

    Maybe just build with the band-on DT shifters in mind, as built up in pics, to suit the customer's preference, I guess....

    Pretty slick, yup.

    I really enjoy my one SP bike for its notable stiffness (I also ride big bikes). SPX = very nice.

    Enjoy.

    I've seen mention of an *80th* anniversary Bottechia being produced in 1989. This could be one of those?

    Treat us to a few detail shots along with that ride report, perhaps?

    Looks like a nice one, 531 or 531c, roughly mid-to-late-1980s?
