|Further to my earlier thread regarding my Colnago project. Would it be 'right' to put Carbon levers on a retro bike (albeit with a modern grouppo) or should I stick with the silver of Chorus?
Same dilemma with the rear mech. Chorus or Record?

|in my opinion, the carbon ones are the only way to go.|

|I recently restored a mid-eighties DeRosa and upgraded to full Campy record group set (Although I did keep the original Delta Brakes :-) ). I get compliments all the time, go for it!

|If it were me, I'd go with Chorus for a slightly more retro look.|

|I think if I were truly going retro I'd stick with downtube shifters. If ergo has to be, then stick with more traditional looking Chorus. There are no real rules here; you asked for opinions and I gave mine. Its your bike - make yourself happy|| |
