Very beautiful to look at (except the tape), but more-or-less unrideable for me around here.

Changes included new tape, 23mm Michelin Pro Race 3's, a nice classic quill stem, and a complete Campy 10 speed drive-train with a triple crank. Record BB, Chorus crank, Centaur shifters and dérailleurs. A subtle change in looks, but a world of difference in performance.

Beautiful! I really like it!
