I'll pay the shipping if you send the rusty Campy parts to me. Spray the bike with WD-40 and give it a rub down. It might just come back to life.

Most trails by me are crushed limestone. I like riding on that stuff. And riding on it with 23mm sew-ups is kind of a kick. 25mm and definitely 28mm gives better control when it gets wet and sloppy.
