I've got several groupsets and several frames and trying to think through all the various permutations is making my head hurt!

Frames are:

- Raleigh Panasonic 531c, built when Raleigh were still really great

- Eddy Merck Corsa Extra SLX

- Lemond Zurich 853


Groupsets:

- Nuovo/Super Record mix

- Shimano 600 tricolor

- Shimano Dura Ace 7400

- Mavic mix groupset (starfish cranks, 501 hubs, lovely rear mech, levers with exposed brake cables



Thoughts are:

Raleigh - Campag or Mavic, possibly favouring Mavic

Merckx - 7400 or outside possibility Mavic

Lemond - 600 tricolor looking good



But I'm in at least two minds about it all!

Any suggestions?

does the tricolour g/set predate 853 tubing? If its ok, then I'd go with this choice too

I think it does but by not too much and via a quick mock up it doesn't look too out of place (well, no more so than usual with my bikes).
