Howdy folks.

I have a 1984ish Nuovo/Super Record mixed gruppo that is destined for a French frame set. I got to thinking that a completely French build would be cool, but I don't know that much about mid-80s French components. Would a "good" race type bike have used Simplex, etc. or would it have been "tout Mavic" if French equipped? What Mavic components would most likely have been used on a nice but not top of the line bike? Was there more than one group available? My perception is that the Mavic stuff is a lot less common than same vintage Campy. Is that correct?

Thanks, Doug
