|Thanks to everyone who helped out on the Frame front. I ran across an outstanding deal on a new 60 cm Redline Conquest (not the Pro), which is a leftover frame. It is cheap enough that it is ok if it is not a perfect fit. I can ride it this season and get a better idea what I need and sell it for what I paid for it or turn it into a fixed/SS ride.
As I am riding Campy 10 on my road ride, I would like to stay with Campy 10 (always have an emergency wheelset, same shifting, love Campy, ect).
I will probably go with Centaur 10 STI's, cassette and deraillers (but will listen to your advice).
Looking for advice based on your likes for:
Crank: Ritchey or Truavative?
BB: Ultegra or ISIS?
Brakes: Are Avids really noisy? What's a solid choice?
Bar and Stem: Salsa? Ritchey? Others?

|Centaur 10 is fine. get the ritchey crank/Ult BB combo. Avids squeal, you can stop but to me it wasn't worth the constant hassle and pads wearing at 15 degree angles. Get Spooky's or empellas.
Either Bar/Stem combos will work. Avoid the Ritchey WCS, too light for cx abuse.

|For what it's worth I think the Salsa Bell Lap bars are the greatest thing invented since the cantilever boss. I wasn't aware that Ritchey did a cross specific bar. A normal road bar is a compromise in my eyes.|

|They are quite the deal too. The oversized model Bell lap model looks to be the ticket.
