" I have an 85 Montello with period correct C'Record that I have been riding for a number of years now. My dad bought it the year I was born, and when circumstance lead me to sell my carbon Bianchi 928, I wiped the dust off of that Montello and have really enjoyed riding it, even in fast paced groups. Though it is hard to keep up when you have to reach down and stop pedalling to shift. The only reason I am not using that frame is that is built up in period correct form.[/QUOTE]
..tip about shifting.... it shouldn't be a concern because you should be in front of your friends on their girlymen carbon bikes anyway.
