    Another LeMond...

    This thread is loaded with sweet steel rides. Time to add my '01 Zurich. Built it this winter - mostly with parts I had lying around with some second hand gear mixed in. The 853 steel rides like budda.

    Nice bikes.

    It makes me happy to see the Simplex levers on the Colnago. I've got them on my De Rosa.

    Big improvement over the Campagnolo levers.

    Thanks. My first time with the Simplex levers. At first I didn't like them because I couldn't tighten/loosen on the fly, as opposed to the d-ring on the Campy levers. They're dials in now and working nicely.

    The Simplex/ Mavic Retrofriction levers out-performed anything on the market at the time.

    First I had Campy; periodically I had to replace the plastic compression washers.

    Then I tried Modolo's, until I snapped one plastic lever.

    I think I had Suntour Sprint friction levers. Meh.

    Then I finally ignored my weight-weeniness and tried the Simplex/Mavic. Oh; what light action on the pull! And lubed and adjusted properly, they were milkshake smooth on release. As a bonus, they never went out of adjustment.

    Looks like lugged, new production, made in Japan Panasonic frames are a thing.
