Due to an unfortunabte accident involving my C-dale's top tube and a lawn mower, I am buying a new frame.

I have eleceted to purchase a new Trek OCLV frame and fork.

Since I am buying a new frame, I figure I'll go all the way and get a new group as well.

I know that I want Campy Record 10.

I am pretty sure that I am going to order the Campy Record 10 group from Colorado Cyclist.

Has anyone here ever done that? For about 1,700 dollars, it offers everything but pedals and cables.

Any thoughts on this?

PS Is putting Campy on a Trek frame as bad as putting Dura Ace on a Colnago?

Since you are buying a new OCLV frame and fork from Trek, why not take advantage of their new Project One. It allows you to customize your bike with components of your choice. You can just choose the Campy Record 10 package and have your LBS build it up for you. You even name your bike.

Since Campy Record is one of the options on their website, I am sure you will have no problem installing it on your OCLV frame if you choose to buy from CC and build it up yourself.

The remaining component choices are pretty skimpy-wheels, bars, etc. not a lot to choose from.

Using their Project One, a bike built up with ultegra costs neary $3000!

I am getting a Frame/fork brand new for $700. (Dont ask.)

Adding an $1,750 build kit, saves me a bunch o'money!!

CC offers a fine build kit. No problems. Consider getting the same complete bike from Trek with similar equipment, or at least price it out.
