What’s more, these were perfect units-all of them NOS (that’s Ebay-ese for “New Old Stock”) components.Never ridden, never bolted to a bicycle, never even taken out of their original boxes.
Richard Sachs told Bicycling magazine editor Joe Lindsey that he believed his collection also contained the only complete, date-stamped set of Nuovo Record derailleurs in existence.
Sometimes considered the last (and best) year of the "C-Record" era.
The Record™ Pista™ groupset is a set of high-range components designed to excel in the velodrome. Three products designed exclusively for the specific needs of use on the track.
The other components, such as seat posts, pedals and headsets have been borrowed directly from the Record road groupset.
Were these parts diamond-studded or encrusted with unicorn horn? The thirty-three derailleurs and sixteen shift lever units were all stock Campagnolo models, dating from the late 1950s to the late 1980s.
But to Campyphiles, calling these bits of drivetrain “run of the mill” would be a bit like describing a Ferrari 250 GTO as “an old red car.” Sachs’ offering was, in all likelihood, the most complete collection of old school Campagnolo derailleurs in existence.On bikes, the term groupset, or “gruppo”, refers to any mechanical or electronic parts that are involved in braking, changing gear, or the running of the drivetrain.That means the shifters, brake levers, front and rear brake calipers, front and rear derailleurs, crankset, bottom bracket, chain, and cassette.Some help with tying down the date for the changeover of Molteni series One and Two and extending frame number ranges would be appreciated.Used details of about 15 well documented higher end Kessels Merckx frames, from Internet sources, to come up with the time line.If there is no Campagnolo selected store near you, you can however contact the best cycling stores in your area or contact the reference service center via our contacts page.
