Hey fellas, I know this is a sore, often kicked to death subject, but I have an older model Six13, the thing looks brand new, getting it from a friend who rides locally. I am going back and forth with what component group I want to put on it. I do not have any wheels at this time that are mine to dictate one or the other, so I am wanting to know what type of group?

My initial thought is to build it up similar to the Saeco days with Campy and some good wheels with Fizik and FSA parts.

I also like the look of the new SRAM Red. I have in the past raced on all three components. This would be my bike so I would not have to give this one back.

They're all good. New SRAM Red has just been released so will stay "new" the longest. New Dura Ace is coming soon, so 7900 will be outdated earlier if you use that.

What's on your other bikes? Think about wheel compatibility of your current wheels.

Do not have a wheel compatability issue, because the bike and wheels I am on are not mine. I do not own my own, so I would be buying everything. I keep telling myself that I want a Campy bike, but I have been racing and training on SRAM for the past three years.
