Hi Paul, welcome aboard and thanks for your input.
At present I have a Rourke frame, a pair of carbon Mizuno forks, some very nice and light Shimano wheels, a USE seatpost and matching stem.... and that's it. So, in order to make any form of forward motion I am going to have to buy a groupset of some sort or another.
I figure that as I need to buy something, then in order to do the frame justice it should be high quality, otherwise I might just as well go to Halfords or Argos and get a BSO with drop bars.
Many years shooting in regional, National and International competition taught me that top quality kit performs better and gives a lot less problems, so when I'm building bikes I take a similar approach. Whether I can exploit the advantages top kit brings, is another matter entirely.
