Fantastic price, but to be honest I would never know the difference between this and my 105. Good find all the same.
how much! fantastic price? is it made of gold?

surely better of putting the money towards a new ride?

a quick scan of the list is two rolls of tape and a seatpost lol

thats like saying, why pay for the engine in a Ferrari when you could just buy a ford fiesta!!
Cold only 20 gears, oh wait a minute it's parts FTP build a high performance road bike at less than a third of the price. What's nt hot about it? If your in the market it's a bargain, if not then don't vote when the deal isn't understood.

So Hot Hot Hot.
It was never £1600 without brakes.
Sorry that should say and without brake callipers.
Clothing sale now on! (Emporers welcome...)
An interesting deal

Oh thats ok then.
I am new to road cycling but I am struggling to believe anyone ever paid £1,000 for this, let along £1,599. Is the RRP a little missleading?

Genuine question here. What would a complete beginner like need in addition to this to build a decent road bike? Total Budget including this, under 1000
Great price, how long till someone points out a Tiagra/105 groupset at a lower price?

Judging from the photo of the parts, all that you need to complete the build is the actual bike bit (i.e. frame, wheels etc)

Plus it would be wise to get a pump, puncture repair kit and a bell
Out of interest what is the cheapest bike you can get with this groupset?

Besides the frame of course, looks like:
- wheels
- brakes
- pedals

I would have thought your groupset would be a little too good for the bike if you managed to get all of the above for £500 and Ultegra is probably a bit over the top for a complete beginner. I just got a bike with a Tiagra groupset and am really happy with it. Even Soras are much improved this year.

Not to take the micheal too much but a bike( light weight frame). oh and brakes, some decent rims and tyres (I've heard Michelin do good tyres). Finally the know how to be able to put it together. You would probs need to get the frame second hand or in a sale to keep it in budget. a friend told me bike shops in Germany quite often have good on-line deals.

If you're a complete beginner and considering this then you are definitely much more mental than the people that paid RRP for this!

Massive overkill and there would be plenty of bikes that would probably still be overkill for a complete beginner for the price of just this groupset.
Maybe because it gets more use but the shifting on my Genesis commuter with Tiagra is smoother than the 105 equipped CUBE I use for training.

The only time I have been really wowed by a change in parts was replacing the X9 triggers on my MTB to X0 gripshifters, micro adjustment and the ability to dump 9 gears at once is a revelation.

The only way £500 is coming out of my wallet is when Di2 drops this low, then I'll add to cart.

On a final note, I love how bike deals attract complete buffoons and trolls who appear to revel in their lack of knowledge of one of best ways to save money on petrol and gym bills whilst getting out and about in the open air.
Any recommendations on frame and wheels to go with? Can it be assembled at home or would it be best taking it to a bike shop?

Forget this rubbish.

You'll have a far more satisfying and enjoyable ride on top of a Pendleton. And for much less

Genesis Equilibrium frame, modern steel for a comfortable ride and a Tiagra wheelset from Spa Cycles.

You won't get much change (if any) out of £2,000. You might get lucky once the sales start but then again you might not.
Pretty good deal IMHO, have a look at Chainreaction...... http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=84316
Ultegra/105 mix for £750 but the deal has been on for a while so restricted to frame size.
Oh look, another cycle/accessory deal for rish bishes.
No brakeset though which would just put it inline with places like Merlin Cycles etc.
Holy cow, that's a blinding deal! If I had a spare £500 (when does anyone have a 'spare' £500...?) I'd definitely buy this.

Thanks, will stick to my £100 Tesco Vertigo Bilbao on here a few weeks back, it's a fast enough steed for my 3 mile commute!

This site is about saving money. You don't need to spend thousands to enjoy the benefits that you mention. A lot of it is about snobbery, hence people taking the pee.

Bicycling is a big part of the future. It has to be. There's something wrong with a society that drives a car to workout in a gym.

Not my words.

I bought a Trek bike with full Ultegra including brakes for £999 in a sale at Evans about 5 years ago. even allowing for inflation, this doesnt seem that brilliant a deal.

I agree, we have a gym about a 5 minute walk from my house and one of my neighbours drives there! However the consumer society in which we live insists on packaging cycling up as a leisure activity to sell it back to us, rather than selling it as the transport solution it can be!

I don't agree with the snobbery aspect of your comment, this site is not about how much money you have it's about how much you can save, many people forget that.

If a user earns 100k a year should they not also save money by taking advantage of a deal here, just because someone can afford to spend £000s does not mean they are in any way better than someone who can afford £00s.

People seem happy to spend hundreds on huge new TVs when the only discussion is about picture/build quality, when it comes to AV you rarely hear the 'expensive TVs are owned by the rich' cry from the boards.

It seems to be acceptable to live in social housing, receive benefits, and have the state pay your legal aid bills whilst owning a 60" 3D telly, but don't even think about owning a nice bicycle whoever you are..................

And the car you decide to drive isn't snobbery, or the clothes you wear? We could all drive around in Rover Cities and wear Asda George, but we chose not to, probably because we're really all snobs. If people want to spend quantities of money on a hobby, what's wrong in that, it's their money?

It's an excellent deal if you want to build your own pretty high spec bike, but remember, it's the frame that you really want to spend the money on. As someone mentioned, it'd be better to wait for the autumn and buy a bike with this sort of kit in the sales. This is a good deal for someone who has a decent bike already but wants to upgrade their groupset. Also, you'll need a few specialist tools to install this stuff.
prices have been on the up since i last looked but i think this is a good price for sure! makes you wonder why they're selling it off cheap?
I had a bike with 105 setup and tbh the big weak link was me for sure! but if you were going to get yourself a nice carbon frame from the far east this would be worth a punt;)
