Send me SASE and $1 cash and I will mail you an Alpina WingTT sticker like on the Aero seat posts. It can also be cut and/or used for the forks. $2 gets you two of them.

Only $550? They're selling out all over the place and only that much? Should be at least $700.

Get a Dolan Pre Cursa. You do not need SRAM Omnium. Get Sugino messenger instead. If you want steel get a Pake.

Personally the Pistard is not nearly what I would recommend compared to Mavic Ellipse. These are the standard. Difficult to get a good deal though.

That looks like real Ciocc to me. That's so strange about the "c" he he. What did you pay for it?

The question is VERY open ended. If you ride fixed gear the answer here is the Mavic Ellipse wheelset. That is the standard.
