7005 road frame going east

This is a rim brake road frame for mechanical shifting.......remember these ? I still ride one. Last Sunday I was thinking as I was nearing the end of the four hour ride that electronic shifting would be nice for my arthritic tired hands. The next day I rode and didn't think about it at all. Today I rode and didn't think about it- I guess I only think about electronic shifting when I'm tired .
The tubing is all Dedacciai 7005 series and the frame is 3 lb. 6 oz. - a little more than a lb. less than something this size in steel. The feel of the ride is a bit different as the tube wall is thicker and the tubes are larger diameter than the steel tubes I use. It should feel nice for out of the saddle climbing.
