View Full Version : New gruppo dilemma

Ok, so I just bought a 2013 11 speed Campy Record
gruppo from Steve at Bespoke here on PF
Now--no frame to hang it on. My Eisentraut
is dedicated rando(gen hub, triple crank)
My plastic Ibis has mostly white stuff-wheels,
post, bars, saddle, stem
And DA group
And my ca 1999 steel Colnago Altain
( just bought here, thanks Toby/ ninja man)
Has 9 speed Chorus ( period correct)

Considering Ti or steel, custom or not,
Used ok
Lots of great opinions out there
Not big fan of: Moots, Sacha, more plastic
Thinking Della Santa or Firefly/Spectrum
Let the rumpus begin!
Thanks,
Mojo

Unless used is a requirement, I'd just order a new Della Santa. Lead time is 6-8 weeks and it's Oct after all..............

A white RL with record 11 sounds like a great idea.

well, you listed wanting ti or steel, and did not list a budget. you also mentioned a nice carbon record modern group. here's my vote:

ask Ari what he wants for his Legend - I think it would fit you well (56.5 st, 56 tt) and I know as a previous owner that it rides superbly. Pretty paint, too.

Yeah I know Ari from Davis
Not sure he's selling the Legend
Nearly bought a DiSalvo from him
Think I might go Al
That Rock Lobster
I have bikes in Ti, steel, and plastic
Sold Scandium Moser and Specialized

If you are looking to round out materials. How about jimcav's stainless IF, that thing is red hot, and should be about your size.

Or as you are interested in Firefly, have them do you a stainless one, I am loving my FF. Or if you are set on alu, maybe time for a Gaulzetti?

Pretty frame, but a Wound Up fork? I do like Wound Up... I have one on a Legend.
