This project started with an eBay purchase of a Scott Addict 58cm frame, new from factory warranty replacement (2011 or 2012 model). I had intended to retire my 2004 Specialized Allez Pro and move over its Dura-Ace gear. Then I was lucky and found OEM packaged new 2013 10-speed SRAM Red shifters for a great price from Bike Nashbar. Most other gear was purchased via eBay. Total cost for entire project ~$2500 or so.
Regarding the tall seatpost and spacers under stem, some will probably suggest I should have gotten a larger frame, but with my horribly long legs and short torso, that would have required an awfully short stem. So I prefer the taller setup and like the geometry of the 58cm frame better than the oversized look of 61cm frames.
I am very happy with the result, weight, cost, appearance. On the road it feels great - dampens vibrations better than my old Specialized, better fit, better gearing (50-34) and most importantly for this bike, it's super light [I have since purchased parts to adjust the fit of my Specialized, incl. new carbon handlebars, and with 27mm tires, it has become a great bad-weather bike].
The SRAM doubletap shifters performance is awesome. Great reach and modulation, compared to my 2004 Dura-Ace, especially with the Planet X brakes. After getting used to DoubleTap it works great as well. I miss is a gear indicator
though. On my 2004 Dura-Ace shifters, I have two. One on the cable, one on the Flightdeck computer.
