@RobbieTunes - enlighten me on the feel of a P frameset. I love my ‘88 531SL, but at 190# the thinner tubes would be a failure weighting to happen on a hard ride.

Gorgeous bike.
Wondering the motive behind multiple friction shifters? Nostalgia?

What a great thread. I just spent an hour looking through some of these pictures. I am new to to cycling and I am still searching for my first road bike, however as a child I remember an uncle had some road bikes, and I was amazed by them. As a child I found the drop bars some amazing for some reason. These pictures remind me so much of those bicycles my uncle had.

Welcome to the forum. Where odd things seem real.
This is not an expensive way to have a little fun, and we geek about a lot of stuff.
Not a bad apple in our bunch, except me, but someone has to be it.

You can save a lot of time and money figuring out what you want from the advice here.
And then you will still fine-tune your approach. Good on you.

I weigh that much, at times, a stocky little gnome during the winter.....Fear nothing.

Rides lighter than it weighs out. I think the geometry balances well, if that makes any sense.

Not as much nostalgia for the friction as an acceptance of the package, knowing it's not my daily/go-to bike, but one for the experience of, say, 75 miles in the mountains on a smooth friction triple...

That being said, the Bob Jackson is an indexed DA 3x6; my Titan is a fragile 120mm, as is my Raleigh International, so I don't mess with any forced expansion; and my Centurion Comp TA won't accept indexed shifters due to the mounts being the older Shimano style.

Back in September, I cleaned up a neglected Bridgestone T700 and put on new tires, cables, handlebar tape and pedals to keep it in line with the original look.

Wow! That cleaned up nicely. And, with minimal badging and decals it is uncluttered looking and rather elegant.

Love your Crater Lake De Rosa w/triple, and the Mondial is almost unethically gorgeous; but man, that Tommasini makes me seriously envious.
