Have it on my 10 year old dolan and it works as well today as it did on the day I picked it up. Its a bottom end groupset but performs really well in my experience.

Thanks pdstsp, it's obviously an old groupset (now discontinued) but reports put it above an equivalent Sora

I would say it's similar to current Sora, but above 2300 (and old Sora). I would think it'll be the Campagnolo 'Escape' mechanism on these (the thumb button only shifts one rear gear at a time and there is no trimming going down to the smaller front ring) so you loose a lot of what 'better' Campag groups offer - but still more than usable. :)
