The 2 105 groups look nice. I definitely could go for the 1051 (dark grey). Would they work with a modern compact crank (if there are no compact rings compatible with the 1051 crank)?

I was actually looking for white like the Sante components. Black would work too, but I would like to stick to DT shifters. That limits the number of new (black) groups I could use.

All white or black group

I'm looking for either all white or all black components for a build. New, classic, doesn't matter as long as the price is right. I'm thinking Sante or newer all black Shimano 105. I will be going...

As a follow up, I heard from DT Swiss. They did not give a model number but did say that it was not the type with a star nut and thus was not convertible to a campy free hub (which was my reason for...

ID hubs on DT1800 LTD wheels

I've got a set of DT Swiss DT1800 LTD Giant wheels that came stock on a TCR a few years ago. Does anyone know the model of hub? I've emailed DT Swiss but haven't heard back. Thanks

Ok, so I pulled the trigger on the first piece of the build, a set of DT Swiss 1800 wheels. I decided against a donor bike for a few reasons. 1) I have a specific idea in mind for this bike and I...

Thanks for the specific links. I am familiar with Shimano 600, but Suntour is Greek to me. Not much comes up on CL around here so eBay may be my best option. $325 does seem a bit expensive for a...

Higher end Peloton was chrome under paint. My Supersport was not. Great frame by the way. I wish I had never sold mine.

Campy Brakes

I've got a full 10 speed campy group for my 86 Schwinn Peloton, minus the brakes. I'd like to stick with Campy for the brakes. What I'd like to know is where the best value is. I don't need Super...

No,by resto mod I meant newish (9 or 10) speed components but keeping the original paint on the frame and new but classic looking wheels. Like record hubs with open pros.
