In response to Stevan's comments:
Hmmmm.. You used that "obsolete" word again about vintage Campy parts... have you been brain-washed by your local LBS? "Obsolete" is just a marketing term for parts your LBS can't obtain - which does not apply to CR forum members where they can be found.
Through the CR, ebay, and reputable vintage dealers, I have easily found 1980s Campy parts that I need. No LBS needed here... Prehaps we should label this parts network CR members tap into as the "Vintage Underground"! <COOL!> <GRIN> No obsolete parts used here...
