Been offered a mint condition (been in the loft for a few years) Fort ROT.7005 frame and forks. Comes with:
3T THE Stem
ITM Europa bars
Stronglight Headstrong headset
Shimano Tiagra Calipers
Shimano 105 brake levers
Shimano 105 down-tube levers
Shimano 105 (FD-5503) Front Mech
Selle Italia FLX Saddle
Shimano BB (Unknown model)

Guy is asking for £100. Is this a good deal?

Also, could I use the existing front mech along with 10-speed 105 STI levers and a 105 10-speed rear mech?

    sounds pretty good...

    you will need 10sp cassette/chain/Sti's new cables & POSS A front mech ...

    i have found that with narrower 9&10 speed chains the older type mech struggles to fully push it up...
    assum eyou will need wheels ...pair of shimano 550s or fulcrum 7s & makes a nice entry level bike,,

    also some older chainrings are not happy with 10sp chains...
