Posted a post the other day asking for recommendations on ALU TT frames, and I'm stalking a couple of Ribble on ebay so should be good there.

The plan is to build it up as a bit of a hodge podge. I've got my Carbon Tubs, so am fine there, but need basically everything else.

If anyone has any SRAM Apex/Rival bits mechs and chainsets kicking about, whatever condition, I'll definitely make a sensible offer. SRAM 500TT shifters would also be considered.

I also need a set of base bars and extensions, again, anything really considered as long as its not carbon.

I'm also on the look out for an aero seatpost that's 27.2mm. Mainly because I think they're cool, not for the performance advantage.

Lastly, I like the look of the Campagnolo 'U' brakes on Ribble, has anyone had any experience with them? What's the difference between the lat pull and the centre pull ones?

TT shifters can be had for £70 at the moment, I have them on the trike, Was looking at R2C, but they are so expensive for all the benefit I would get. http://www.tredz.co.uk/.Sram-500-TT-Aero-Shifters_29923.htm

OR, you can get Dura Ace at the same price http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=34322

I'll keep an eye out for bars  3

Thanks Gkam, got them clocked at £68.70 from fudges.

Want R2C as well but they're just too much.

Want to just get a solid, fast, beast of a machine for minimal expenditure.
