Today's Retro Bike: 1990s Ciocc San Cristobal

Reader David A recently finished this rebuild of a very nice Ciocc for a friend. Complete with Delta brakes, this a great example of a pro-level machine from near the end of Campy's dominant era in the pro peloton. The Synchro shifters on this bike worked OK, but not as well as offerings from ShimaNO and Suntour, and the days of integrated shift/brake levers were not far off, sounding the death knell for downtube shifters.
