Help me buy this bike!NilesFerrier

I test-rode the Litespeed Arenberg this weekend. I really liked it. I can get it with either 105 or Campy Centaur (used to be Daytona) and any wheelset I want.

This is my first REAL Road Bike as my other bike is a Trek 7000 Mtn Bike.

What should I get? I plan on riding it for fitness, group rides, perhaps a race or two.

I want to keep the total cost down as much as possible but I am willing to sacrifice a couple of Latte's for it! :-)

Shimano/Campy: Personal pref.
Wheelset: To keep the total cost down I'd recommend a set of Open Pros. Great wheels, not too costly.

"I really liked it."

What components did it have on it when you had your test ride?
Buy those. If it was a more expensive group, buy from the same manufacturer. In other words, you already answered your component question.

Wheels? I second Open Pros. Cheap, bulletproof.

FWIW,
