    Why did you need to replace the springs?
    I have the same Gran Compe levers, and have not noticed any loss
    of tension through-out the years, but I could be mistaken.
    What do they feel like now?

    28H year?

    I'm trying to make my new vintage frame build period-correct. Does anyone happen to know which year 28H wheels came into the picture? Mine are 700c.
