Can you tell I'm excited?
Anyway...I'm going to DIY build this one and thought I'd ask some preliminary questions.
I have wheels I am happy with and a complete 105 Shimano group that has relatively low mileage on it. Eventually I'd like to go full Ultegra, but I might try the 105 swap first just to get my feet wet and not to 'throw away' a perfectly good groupo.
So my first two questions of what will probably lead to a long list are these...
1) is there any downside to starting off with just moving over my existing 105 group to the new frame? i'm operating under the assumption that I can then switch to Ultegra down the road with no harm done??
2) i do need a headset and my starting point is this, http://www.coloradocyclist.com/product/item/KINJFR3K. however, i have a feeling it's overkill for my group. are there a few good runner-ups that give me 80% of the quality with 20% of the cost (ok, maybe 50% of the cost, but just sticking with the 80/20 rule concept)? i.e., i like to try to keep components roughly equivalent so what would be an 'ultegra-equivalent' headset that costs less than the Chris King? or should i just bite the bullet and get the CK?
