Not sure why I love Paramounts so much. I was too young to be into bikes in their heyday, but they just do "it" for me. PDG's aren't usually the ones I lust after but I have to say I dig this one.

The 2 105 groups look nice. I definitely could go for the 1051 (dark grey). Would they work with a modern compact crank (if there are no compact rings compatible with the 1051 crank)?

I was actually looking for white like the Sante components. Black would work too, but I would like to stick to DT shifters. That limits the number of new (black) groups I could use.
