Ok, I know it is wrong, and I do feel vile attempting to hawk my stuff on the road forum...but the classifieds are very MTB-orientated and I don't know if the right people have seen these...

Dura Ace 7700 chainset:

Ultra-sexy 7400 stem:
http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=62154

These will certainly teach me to hold off before getting my wallet out. The cranks, being 2.5mm too long, make me think I'd injured my knee, such was the pain. And 20mm extra on the stem = lumbar back pain! I had to keep getting off the bike, making even short rides take hours to complete. I've had to replace my crankset with an old Ultegra one for now and I'm eyeing up a 100mm 7400 stem...funds dependent, of course...

Again, sorry for this sort of thing, but I thought perhaps these would be of interest to you guys.

I'd seen them but they are too big for me too - I'm selling a set of forks and a stem for the very same reason - buying before the ruler comes out.

I've been kicking myself - I didn't even attempt to build the bike with spares and actually have a ride on it before I started angrily buying up parts.

I'm particularly miffed at the nice £25 Flite that was sold on here a couple of days ago too - I paid no less than £55 for mine.

That's fairly tempting - I am currently trying out 100mm on a few rides before I make any more bold financial moves!
