Since we're showing off our neo-retros, here's my 86 Gazelle Champion Mondial with a 10-speed Campy group. I've taken it on the A ride many times and even raced it when my race bike was knocked out of commission. It's a bit heavier and not as stiff as my Tarmac, but it's not holding me back. It lives for crosswinds and bad pavement.
