So i bought the orange IRO angus frame b/c i liked the color and i really like the way quill stems look on threaded headsets and stuff.
So as of now, i have the frame/fork, tange headset, nitto jaguar stem, b125 bars, and sugino RD cranks. so thats already like $525.
So i've calculated the other parts i want to buy for the bike, the most expensive of which include open pro wheelset, rolls saddle, dura ace hubs, amongst other things. All this will total to around $900.
I know its really up to me on how much i want to spend on my bike, and i'm sure i'm going to be happy with the bike once i'm done building it up. But i just wanted to get an opinion on whether or not its just plain ridiculous to spend $1000+ on a $325 frameset. I know my friends/family that know nothing about bikes think i'm ********.....oh well, i figure i make money to spend it, so I might as well spend it on something i really like, as opposed to getting drunk and going out or something like that.
