all my bikes are steel but i do have a most likely on topic frame and fork that i put the new stuff on...got the levers with the clickey stuff in them and large cassette on the rear wheel...

my other two bikes are vintage all the way except for the tires. my next build will probably be lugged steel with newer components.
