Glad they are of use. With regards to components it all comes down to how much you want to spend and be comfortable in paying. I would love to build up my second Lemond project in Record 06 carbon. I know its totally the wrong era for an early 1990's frame but if done with a no later 06 Record group can be done tasteful too look sort of retro. 'Retro Pimp'. I must post the pics of the Coal Black Z when we have some decent weather
With one Record equipped bike in the garage amd the fact I am a fair weather cyclist at best, with dodgy knees and not enough time to go out I simply cannot justify a second expensive build, however with the new project I have switched tactic and gone for 06 Campagnolo Veloce, Ok its heavier and will not perform like Record but its still Campag with the retro Campagnolo logos and will give a real retro look with all alloy components, and a third of the cost. Some finds have been bargins where I have deviated from the gears eg. 06 Chorus Headset NOS £20, 06 Chorus Seatpost NOS £40.
I have allowed the odd indulgance (period correct) with a Cinellli Grammo Stem purely because I cannot find a decent priced Cinelli XA NOS Stem in my size. Thats my excuse to my lovely wife anyway
