I'm in the same boat with a Tricross Sport frame. Pretty much I've everything except a drivetrain; Also because it will be ridden only a handful times a year I can't justify to spend a ton on it.
Few years ago I had a 05' Kona Jake the Snake which was full shimano 105 and it was ok. Originally wanted to do a full 105 but now I'm leaning towards Rival, which seems to be best bang for the buck (ultegra quality at 105 price).
I'm unsure about other cx specific drivetrains.
Yesterday I picked up an 09' Aksium wheelset at performance on sale ($200). Rear wheel was missing the skewer so sales dude went to back looking for a leftover and returned with a mavic top of line one and tossed it for free ($30 value)
. I know these wheels are a bit less than ideal but it should hold since I don't race and I'm pretty light.
Hope it helps.
