    Higher end Peloton was chrome under paint. My Supersport was not. Great frame by the way. I wish I had never sold mine.

    Thanks for the rec's guys. Lots of good choices to research. I like the idea of those Novatec hubs. Easily switch b/w Campy and Shimano. Sweet. And I have definitely decided on a minimum of 23mm...

    No,by resto mod I meant newish (9 or 10) speed components but keeping the original paint on the frame and new but classic looking wheels. Like record hubs with open pros.
