What road bike do you have?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Pinarello Montello

I am new here and I see this is an older conversation. What the heck…

I have a 1987 Pinarello Montello SLX.
A classic for sure.

That would be Stronglight 93 and 105. Ofmega Mistral is very nice too, if a bit aggresive in shape. Some 3-arm cranksets from Stronglight, TA or SR look pretty cool too. Then again, I'm biased towards C&V bikes and components.

I built up a Puch Mistral NOS frame and fork with Ultegra 11sp. Really lush ride. 9.4 kg. My lightest bike to date. (Weight weenies might scoff at it, but ye know, steel is real and all that ).
Frame is likely 35+ yo and was never built up. Was a delight to build it up.
