Shimano 5800/6800 is untouchable cost--performance-wise.
Also completely agree on the crankset issue. None of the other components polarize nearly as much.

Hefty, but definitely better looking than Shimano's current offerings. I could see this looking very well on an STI-Retro Roadie (STI-RR™).

I have had this problem. Dropout screws or moving the wheel to the very back of the dropout helps. Otherwise: close the quick release really really really hard.

Scrubbing the frame with solvents is useless. The best preparation by far is sandblasting. Painting must be done within about an hour of surface prep.
