Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum, just wanted to introduce myself. I'm currently living in South Florida, moved here from Houston. I rode Mountain bikes at a few of the local parks between Houston and Austin for years, and now that I am here, I am starting to get into road bikes to ride up and down the coast with buddies from work. Only problem is I don't know that much about road bikes. I went and test rode a few at some local shops, and found that I like the positioning of TT bikes better and find them more comfortable for me. I really don't want to spend the hefty amount on a "new" bike, so I just decided to build one. So I have a few questions.
I found a frame my size, a Litespeed Saber 2003, so that's my start. I would like to keep it as light/cost effective/fairly good to really good components as possible. My question is would it be better for me to buy say some older Dura Ace components, or go with some newer ultegra components for pretty much the same amount of money?
Also how is the 2003 saber frame compared to other frames of that same style of bike, or newer model sabers?
Thanks in advance!
