    What to do - My New Project

    So I picked up this new frame a few weeks ago cheap enough and I was trying to figure out how I should build it up. As much as I want to get a campy super record pista gruppo for it, the chances of that realistically happening and me not being in some ungodly amount of debt is unlikely. Of course, why not get some suggestions incase someone thinks of something I haven't. Pictures below. Frame has never been built up

    Or just go for the new Record Pista, it wouldn't look too out of place.

    for a reasonable build i'd probably go

    headset: campy record
    stem: cinelli track
    bars: ttt
    post: campy record aero
    cranks: miche
    bb: campy veloce
    and finish it off with miche's pistard track wheels (that i can't find at a us retailer) which are < $300

    miche would probably be the easiest (buy it all at once) and most cost effective...
    quite partial to the cinelli alu track bars/stem combo though!

    No clue what fork I'm going to use. Was thinking about a chrome fork, but also have a spare Cevelo carbon fiber fork I could use. Really would prefer something that fits the era, or at least looks it.

    here's a question that might in some way be of importance:

    what are you planning to do with the bike once its done?

    everyday ride? weather conditions?

    you could mix it up with quality components ...japanese,
    italian, british, american, spanish ...whatever. although
    i have heard that mixing japanese and italian parts leads
    to catastrophic failure, e.g. explosions. so far i haven't
    experienced any problems with mixing european parts.
