Getting back into cycling - finally!

Hello bikeforum,

Finally getting back into cycling... wasn't able to over the last few years because of time and financial constraints, so this has been a long time coming. Building up a new bike now, a TT frame with a hodge-podge of new and used parts that will be pretty decent. Got a great deal on a few Campy components, so this will be a shift from previous builds - always Shimano before.

Still looking around for good deals on a bar and stem, tires, seatpost, chain, and cables - if you know of anything shoot me a PM. I've been scouring eBay and the forums for parts and aside from those components mentioned above I'm basically done.

Anyway, I'll see you guys around the forum, and maybe out on the road.

Ross

One thing I am looking for (and I'll post this in the Sale / Trade section) is a Campy Record front derailleur for a 10 speed. I just bought a new Record carbon derailleur for an 11 speed, but I don't think it'll work with my 10 speed drivetrain (guy at LBS said it would, but forum members seem to think otherwise... at least, it'll work but with hiccups and lots of trimming).

So, if you have a Record 10 speed front derailleur in good condition that you'd be willing to trade for an 11 speed, let me know. Ross
