|That has to be a cached page from '99? If not buy it now. It would cost that much for just hubs and a crankset these days (if you can find hi-flanges). Although the current sealed BB would be better for a road going bike.|

|At the top it says "2003 Record Group" so it seems certain it's current.
Yes, the "LickNotes" thingy has a '99 date on it but it is just standard boilerplate language for the value of buying a group from them. They just haven't changed it in a few years.

Other high flange hubs should be fine, but the campys are built to be light for the track.
