A no brainer! Tout MAVIC (all Mavic) from 1979. All sealed bearings, everything held together with circlips®, Sean Kelly and Greg Lemond... great stuff.
The company dates to 1890 (Manufacture d'Articles Vélocipediques Idoux et Chanel), first aluminum rim in 1926, TdF Neutral Support since 1973, Sean Kelly King of the Peloton for a decade, Greg's 8 second victory in the 1989 TdF... ya gotta luv it!
