Bob always knows these things big time!! I don't even try to get anything past him.

I should add that I had a 72ish Mirella that came stock with dura-ace brakes while the rest was Campy a mix of NR with some GS hubs and headset through in for good measure (I guess).

Weirded me out big time, so I switched out to the Super 68s for the whopping price of $18 boxed, got me some Campy cables and rode the heck out of them bugger years later on into my sophmore year of college.

Yes, they looked wimpy and I can't say I wanted to see if they bent any easier than Campy, but they did the trick...and yes that quick release thingy was retro before the word retro was even invented.
