Campy 50-th Anniv. group question

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

Campy 50-th Anniv. group question

Hi everyone, I have a 50-th Campy group heading to me, currently in transit. There is no freewheel
in the set. So my question is what kind of freewheel to buy. How many speeds will
the rear der. and the friction shifters handle at the most? Also, what is the highest
number of gears (chainrings) I can get on a threaded freewheel? Furthermore,
does anyone know what is the width (what rear spacing is required) of the rear hub in the
Anniversary set? Thanks very much.

First question is "Why did you buy this if you don't already know the answers?" I'm hoping that you have a worthy classic frame to put that on.

Now go to the "Classic and Vintage" Forum. They will need to empty their drool buckets.

While I always appreciate good sarcasm, I was looking for a straight answer.
The group is going on either my gold-lated NOS Colnago, or my 50-th Anniv Schwinn Paramount.
We'll see.

The 50th Campy group is awesome if you are interested in classic stuff. Folks in this forum are not that interested. It sounds like you have appropriate frames to hang it one. C&V is the place to get the best info.

mollusk is right, you will get plenty of answers in C&V, if it's 20 minutes old it's crap in the road forum.

Yeah, if you have a question about Clif Bars or socks, then this is the right place for your question. Otherwise, the experts in Classic & Vintage will be able to answer your question quickly.

Hey, mollusk :

Drool buckets...? Wow. Poetic.
However, it looks like many of the members actually own this stuff
in the clasic section rather than drooling over it. However, even if they were, at least
they were drooling over the RIGHT stuff, not some carbon/aero/deep-v/ceramic/ wannabe.

I had an eight speed threaded (Record build) on my 87 Paramount. Maybe someone is making nine, I doubt ten. C&V would know.

BTW... AWESOME group. Please post pics when you get it.
