Piecing together a bike - am I missing anything?

Notices
Road Cycling ďIt 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.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

The groupset (shifters) should come with cables. Looks like you may need a seatpost clamp. Also, don't forget carbon assembly paste and grease.

You'll need a FD clamp adapter if the FD in the groupset is a braze-on. From the looks of your frameset, a 34.9 adapter will do.

I'd ditch those cables since the head of those cables won't sit properly inside the Sram shifters. Spend a little extra, pick up the Jagwire Racer kit since it'll cover both the derailleurs and brakes.

And take look at the KMC DX10 SC chain; right around your budget and IMO, much better chain than the Sram chain of choice. The removable connector link is a big plus when wanting to remove the chain to clean it thoroughly.

Tools wise--do you feel that I could pay a LBS to be able to use their tools? Part of this is the pride in doing it myself. I don't have a BB tool or a headset press.

Just a small note. Shimano and SRAM 10 speed cassettes will work. Campy 10 speed cassettes won't.

Probably have to pay them to press them. I know my local shops wouldn't be comfortable letting you use their tools for those jobs. If you have a good relationship with them that does change things of course. Keep in mind, probably going to need to use their cutting guide to cut the steerer as well.

I learned this when I took a class, but it may not be true everywhere. Supposedly most shop mechanics are required to have there own personal tools, and maybe the LBS will provide a couple of the big ones (presses and facers, maybe stands). If that IS the case, I wouldn't be comfortable with someone using my tools unless I knew them well.

Integrated HS doesn't need a press just have your LBS seat the lower race on the fork...buy the BB Tool: https://www.biketiresdirect.com/produ...m-bracket-tool or https://www.biketiresdirect.com/produ...m-bracket-tool Either is cheap and you can probably get them from eBay since that seems to be your favored retailer.
