those 90s aero campy wheels feel really fast at speed. Faster than the new srirrocos i have. They also have a nice ride quality, kind of a hum, really great wheels
but big meme tax on them and most are kill, or tubulars. these ones are kill. (well i still have the front). >>1213184
if that's 8 speed, and you want to keep wasting money on 8 speed campy, look for some aero wheels, and look for some record/ chorus ergos. There is a huge difference between the low end ergos, especially worn ones, and the high end ones.
Keep the triple gearing if you can. You can still get rings for your crank and new cartridge bbs. That is the gearing serious roadies in europe rode in the 90s. If you want to be more pro, get a tighter cassette. One of the main reasons to ride ergos is that the micro ratcheting is so great for triples.
But just be aware, it's not a real true 'classic' frame. It's at the very low end for a nice bike. The paint is ugly and the unicrown fork is ugly. What matters more is how you like riding it, but check yourself, before you end up spending so much you could have gotten a new allum roadie with claris which would unironically be nicer to ride. It's a bit of a dead end with the muh aesthetics because it doesn't look that great, but the pedals and the red tires are the biggest offenders currently.
By all means fetishise it, i did with my >muh low end 90s campy bike, but i honestly got more enjoyment with that bike after i put a junk bare metal tange fork on it, mismatched wheels, shimano 600 parts bin build and stopped giving a fuck and treated it as a beater and stopped getting triggered by sloping top tubes and based nips.
Sorry for the rant anon but that's not pope JP2's colnago
