This bike is in excellent condition.  The alleged superiority of the big-three road component parts makers is a subject of much debate in the world of bicycle nerditude and the truth is all of the higher end stuff mostly works really well and there are nuanced merits and demerits of the various brands, model tiers, and component generations.  In my opinion, these early Campagnolo 8-speed shifters are among the finest.   They have a very solid mechanical action that many of the latest shifters have forsaken in favor of “light action” (or even button operated electric motors!!!).  When shifting, one can really feel the satisfying sensation of the various internal parts engaging and disengaging.  The multi-micro click front shifting is simple and effective, the most widely praised feature of Campagnolo’s integrated brake/shift levers.  This is type of bike that one can really keep for life.

A perfect bike for someone around 5’10” – 6′ tall.
