Mine kit is the next step just after 'hemelsoet' set -- short teardrop ZAC alloy Ni-coated lugs instesad Trixon style Alu alloy lugs. All the next Trowa generation have had a long teardrop chromed lugs in Sonor style and also were changed FT 14" to 16" and angle bearing edges came to rounded.

Cheers,

Thanks for corroborating the lug style, George. Cool about Henk's set travelling over the ocean. BTW, AFAIK and FWIW, Henk is not from Sweden, but from the Netherlands. I am from Sweden.

I see you are from our big neighbouring country to the east. I've never been (which is a total shame and disgrace), but I'd really love to go.

Best,

Magnus

Carry on.
