    What Groupset To Put on a Pinarello

    Hey,
    I'm new here and I just bought a gently used Pinarello F4:13 frame-set and I'm wondering what group-set I should put on it, and for that matter if I can put whatever group-set I want on it or if there are only certain ones that are compatible. This is my first foray into building a bike the way I want it and I am just curious what the guru's here think. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

    Places that the parts fit , BB shell . Dropouts, and seat tube . that ..
    are served by all manufacturers SRAM , Shimano And Campagnolo..
    competing in the bike marketplace..

    more to the point what riding are you setting this up for?

    How much Dosh are you willing to throw into this?

    2008 Novara Randonee - love it. Would have more bikes if I had time to ride them all. Previous bikes: 1968 Motobecane Mirage, 1972 Moto Grand Jubilee (my fav), Jackson Rake 16, 1983 C'dale ST500.

    Choose the group that fits your needs and budget. Nobody here can make that judgement for you. As for compatibility, the few important factors are easily learned by doing some research - but if you don't already know them you may not be well advised to do the build.

    Campagnolo 11 speed. Chorus shifters. Athena triple if you're not strong enough to spin 39 x 23 or 39x25 up the majority of your hills and that gear is otherwise workable depending on whether you prefer an 11 or 12 starting cog. A standard crank is fine if you are.

    Get some NOS 2010 Ultrashift levers if you have a smaller budget which forces 10 speed use. You can still get a set of Veloce levers for $125 including the cable set.

    Buy from the UK (like ribble). Their on-line retail prices can be lower than US wholesale.

    I built up a FP-6 frame last year with Dura-Ace 7900 components and Deda Elementi bars and stem. I sort of wished I had gone Campy, (it is Italian after all), but moved the 7900 from another bike that I no longer wished to use. The D/A works well on the FP-6. But, as others have said, it is a personal choice. Just about anything will work.
