Good bicycle for the price?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

My friend (the low - budget one) wants to build a Pinarello Angliru NOS 2000 frame w/Xenon group and CXP 21 rims. Total cost about $1100. What do you think?

Not a good deal IMO. Have him take a look at GVHBikes.com

They have many, nicer, NOS frames and excellent build kits.

The owner is a very good guy to deal with, and can answer any and all questions.

$ 1100 is total cost, frame 400, group 370, about 330 for the rest.
