What are the specs on the wheels?

Thanks! - go for the group, fork and stem on the Tommasini and post up pics !
The wheels were built by Bradley Wiggins' (maillot jaune in the TDF ) wheelbuilder ..
they're made up of NOS Campagnolo Omega 20 clincher rims, Black DT swiss revolution spokes, Campagnolo Record Hubs, Record titanium cassette and the older silver Record skewers - nice and light and ride great

I thought they were omegas laced to record hubs. I've debated the same build. I've got the current record hub on my cross bike but sold the skewer in favor of the older silver ones.

The omega build was sidelined when I got a "great deal" on a set of silver record hubs laced to cxp33s. The set included like a like new chorus cassettes and skewers.

Nice.

Ive always wanted to know how all three generations of ergo levers fit the shape of any bar you put them on while sti levers often look out of place.

Campy has the lever shape down to perfection if you ask me.

My '85 Basso Gap has a mix of mid 90s stuff on it. Including Ergo Brifters.

Agreed.

Funny thing is I have 8, 9, and 10 speed Campy systems.

They all work very well for me and I have a tough time choosing my favorite.

I know KAS swears by 11 speed Super Record as well.

Maybe the price will slide a bit now that EPS is coming to town.

Heck, it's even in the Athena line for next year.

Mazdaspeed, I love your bike.

So very hot!

Grady, I vote you have a frame builder modify a vintage frame for Athena eps

I love my 1g and 2g hoods, it is about time I try the newest ones.

There are new builders and seasoned pros popping up with new ideas in the Twin Cities.

Dave Anderson should be able to work this out.

Time will come soon enough, won't it!

Hello - I am new to the community and wanted to post about the Trek 2500 I have had for about three years now. I have looked all over the web and I have never seem to find one with white lugs and tubes. I believe it is a 1987 or 1988. It seems like all the other ones are aluminum / metal color. I was wondering if anyone had any information about value for this bike. Appreciate your comments, thanks!

Couldn't tell you about value, as it's all over the place. Seems to bottom out at $300, but not a lot of takers. I upgraded one heavily, and it rode very quickly, as it should have, with tubulars and 8-sp Campy. It was a little harsh on the front end and the back end, about the same as a cheap CF bike would be now... Some people like the painted models. Some do not. You're actually in quite the wrong thread for this subject. Go back to the Forum page, underneath the Classic and Vintage, select the Value Inquiry thread and ask there. This thread is for older models updated with modern drivetrains. Nice bike. I've not seen one like that.

I stuck this in the Dutch Invasion thread, but figured it would go here as well.

NOS '91 Champion Mondial AB with Campagnolo Veloce all over it, Cinelli Touch with 1A, polished Ritchey seat post and white-on-white Arione, XR-30 rims on Ultegra hubs with conversion cassette. Its a delight to ride. And it gets ridden weekly.

The only scratch on it is the one I put on the BB shell fitting the stupid proprietary Veloce BB...grrrr.

I think this counts- early lugged carbon Epic with Campy 11 and a cool locking Stronglight Headstrong headset. Not sure I'm loving the bar tape, may have to go black since I can't find a matching yellow.

Absolutely.

And just for what it's worth, I need to tell you guys that I took my '86 Gazelle out on the Monday night hammerfest. Not only did the old Dutch Master have no trouble hanging in there, it was good enough for a top 10 on one of the Strava segments.

Fantastic! I've dreamed about a modern carbon build on one of these! Black tape and tires with a tan sidewall would make it perfect.

What is the weight as pictured? Is that chorus with record cranks? I've debated that setup on a modern aluminum allez.

Thirdgenbird- it's about 20 lbs as pictured. Yep, Chorus with Record cranks. It rides nicely, this is one of the later frames in the run and has had an easy life. My favorite version of this frame is the early one with raw carbon and raw aluminum lugs, there are a few around here and they look great built up with aluminum groups.
