    Yes:
    R450s
    DA lockring

    No:
    Formula cog (drop the extra bones for a DA or EAI cog, hell even a soma)
    PLASTIC pedals (get sylvans)
    Feetbelts (CAGES and straps!

    everythign else is good entry level stuff
    Its all about a little Team Now Now.

    If you want Feetbelts or Powergrips a narrower pedal will suit them better--you'll get more squeeze when you twist in.

    "Is this a good build?"

    way to be vague.

    if you're happy with it, then it's probably fine.

    Price is a determining factor here. $200? Sure. $400? No.

    why don't you buy a complete windsor and learn to ride get familiar with the bike before you build something that isn't satisfactory (judging from your post you are new to this)

    if you must build the bike at least get gr-9s with clips and straps

    for what it's worth, i know a few people who are loving odyssey twisted pc pedals.

    and you can fit clips and straps on 'em.
