Very nice. Definitely ahead of its time. Boardman used the track version with these wheels for his hour record. Reportedly the frame wasn't super aero but was very stiff. So how does the road version ride?

But rather than Campag, maybe Mavic Zap would be nice? Should be fine since you don't ride in the rain.

True, Mavic Zap could be an option. I got the bike as shown and I will keep it as it is for now.

beautful bike. looks brand new. if you plan to ride safely, get rid of the seatpost. it is a disaster to use. it will slide down within a few feet of riding.

Thanks fro your hint. On the first ride the seatpost did not slide down (but it was only a very short testride). Do you used this seatpost with a corima frame? On the Puma frame, there are 2 screws to keep the seatpost in place.

it is the round pieces of the seatclamp that is the problem. there is nothing really to keep it from "rotating" once you start riding. your body weight will cause the saddle to either go down on either side (nose side or back of saddle side), depending on how you are seated.
