I picked up a Bianchi XL Boron frame....

The question is components... If I put a 105 group on this will I get dirty looks from everybody or will I be ok, and if it has to be Campy would veloce or centaur do? I really got the frame cheap so choru$ $eem$ kinda $illy....
Ya got it wrong!MShaw

You got the frame for little money, so now you can put BETTER components on it!

Live large! Go Record!

I saved BIG on my new frame so I used the amount I had set aside for the frame to get D/A and FSA components. You really don't want to put 105 or Veloce on that frame, do you? That has to be some sort of a crime.=)

Go ahead with the 105... if you can out-ride those
who have to have the "trick" parts/wheels it really
doesn't make sense does it? Have fun - Ride hard -
save your money!
