David,

If you notice, not too many Campy alloy freewheels are available with large cogs 26T and higher. As some of us get older, those straight blocks do not work so well on the hills for our once powerful legs. 13-21T freewheels and 12-17T straight blocks show up several times a month on EBAY. This freewheel is rare and NOS.

I used a Campy alloy 28T at L'Eroica. Those are rarer than hens teeth.
