Long time reader, first time poster. I just purchased a Lynskey Helix OS frame and would like some input from the Weight Weenie Wise men out there. I have a very small budge to build the bike, around $2k, and would like to put together a reasonably light bike that can be upgraded (i.e. put on a diet) over the years. The build can consist of new or used parts. My initial thought was to buy a new groupset and used wheels, handlebar, etc. to save money. The only restriction besides the budget is that I want to use a titanium seat post and I already have a saddle. Also, I am intrigued by Campy but realize that it might be impossible have Campy and stay close to $2k. Any parts or tricks to save money would be much appreciated.

Not sure how to PM, do you mind sending me an email? My email address should be in my profile.

I've gotten a campy record group for 400 and a super record group for 650, both used on this and other forums/ craigslist. There are deals to be had, look for racers on sponsored teams that get a free upgrades annually but don't get paid anything...

Look at Chinese wheels, I got a second hand set of 24mm carbon tubulars for 200 cash (had to buy a campy freehub so add 35 to that)

Just be patient and vigilant deals are there, you just gotta be the first in line.
