Just found this thread.
Here iss something a little different.
You might like it, you might hate it.
I dont care if you do hate it really, because I love it.
1993 Colnago Master Olympic with full SRAM Rival groupset.
Absolutely loving the SRAM.
Previous bike was a Specialized Allez Comp with Dura-Ace/Ultegra mix groupset.
the SRAM shifts at least as well, was easier to set up and if it is anything like the MTB gear will be easier to maintain as well.
Here's my budget racer. I bought the Rival kit from GVH in Oregon. I recommend them highly. I got the group, bars and stem, and used all my old stuff. I had the frame painted to elimate the eurotrash graphics on my ICE frame (the defunct Innovative Cycling Engineering from Germany).
