Thanks for the tips on getting parts. I had been thinking it may be cheaper to buy a whole bike of ebay and strip it off parts but wasn't sure which Campagnolo groups to look for and know nothing about the other brands like Ofmega Cipiemme, Miche, Suntour, or Dia-compe. Shimano i know what to look for but not the Italian stuff. Can someone point me at a link to get educated on that stuff?
On a side note i could hardly sleep because i may be getting a steal on a complete, one owner Colnago Master Piu with Dia-Compe equipment. I found it online in Holland (i live in the USA though) so my dad is going to check it out and close the deal today. He's not a cyclist but he is under instruction to buy it if it was not crashed, bent, dented, cracked or generally if the frame is good. Just called his cell phone but he didn't answer so maybe he's working the deal right now!
Edit: forgot to mention, i've bought a set of 2TTT bars + stem and also bought a Campy aero seatpost with Pinarello pantograph since buying the frameset. Unfortunately the matching blue Silca frame pump is too small for my frame - at least it was only $7. Now i just need to learn about components and buy everything else.
