Dura-Ace 7700/7703 Groupset

SOLD!

I haven't found the right frame to hang this on for my own use, so I wanted to see about passing it on if it is worth more to you than to me. $450 for the set.

It's a Dura-Ace 9-speed triple groupset with the following components, all in good working order and aesthetic condition:
Crankset FC-7703, 53-39-30, 175mm
Bottom bracket BB-7703
Front derailleur FD-7703, 28.6mm clamp
Read derailleur RD-7700 GS
Shifters ST-7700 & 7703
Calipers BR-7700

Cables for the old Shimano Flight Deck have been snipped. Brake pads are new Kool-Stops, and hoods are in great shape. I'll also throw in a "VG Sports" brand 11-28 cassette I bought just for testing the groupset (RD is perfectly happy with a 28).

As you'll see in the pictures, the previous owner took good care of her stuff. I didn't use polish of any kind on these components, just a good cleaning.

Full disclosure: The only mechanical issue I had with the whole set was sticky downshifting on the front derailleur. Based on my YouTube "research," I tried washing out the left brifter with WD-40 which, to my surprise, produced amazing results! So, at the moment it is shifting nicely, but the buyer might want to think about lubricating the internals with something more lasting.

Let me know if you'd be willing to break up the set. I'd be interested in the rear derailleur and brake set.

Beautiful set. Ive run the 9s Ultegra and 105 versions of this with many happy miles.

Ive also run the 105 RD with a 32 rear cog and it had more room to go (guessing same/similar geo with the same tooth ratings) - YMMV.

GLWS!

I really need someone to buy this before me.
I do not need another bike, I do not need another bike, I do not need another bike........ I am getting really close to taking the "For Sale" thread on my frame down and buying this group.

Can you vision this frame draped in this wonderful Dura Ace rolling through the beautiful Wisconsin countryside?

The best group Shimano ever made and hard to find parts that still look good. And a rare triple to boot. Someone should snag this while you can.

The triple fd/rd/crankset are rare, and worth it if the 7700 is your jam. GLWS!

Nice group! The sticky internals happened every once in a while during my Dura Ace Ultegra 9 days and las noted, squirt of WD40 always fixed it.

I have an intact Flight Deck computer or two laying around if the buyer wants the full experience.

Yeah, she had some great stuff on that mystery frame. The Spinergy wheels with plastic spokes are very cool. I did put most of her stuff on a Centurion Ironman, but it didn't feel right, so I took it back to stock-ish.
