Full Ultegra Road Bike for $1095-$1295???joeg26er
Aug 28, 2001 6:58 PM
Maybe I am dreaming but I would like to get a full Ultegra road bike for $1095-$1295.

I want a brand new - not used...

Are there any available?

Thanks

Supergo had a couple (http://www.supergo.com), but you might also want to look at Univega's $1,300 bike, if there's a LBS that carries that brand in you area. Don't remember the model name, but it comes with Campy's 10-speed Daytona group (OK, gruppo). [Important disclaimer for Shimanophiles: Don't flame me. I have an Ultegra/105 mix]. Great frame (Columbus steel), too. Univegas might also be cheaper now that the brand is toast.
Also, check Bicycling's Bike Finder site (http://www.bicycling.com). A good way to compare specs.
Good luck!
Also Motobecane, but caveat emptor the frame (nm)Elefantino

What is wrong with motobecane?
I heard the frames have a lifetime warranty.

Thanks

... has Casati steel bikes with Ultegra for $1295, or KHS Flite 800 (also steel) with Ultegra for the same price. Other good deals elsewhere on the same website.

... has Cervelo Prodigy (also steel) with Ultegra for $1399. A very good frame, and a bit lighter than the two mentioned above.

Happy shopping.

Wondering what the weight is on those bikes.
Can I get a carbon fork and a 2.7 pound frame at that price range?

Don't know about the close-out GT
I would think you would be SOL if something happened.

Who has a lifetime warranty?

I heard that many companies have gotten rid of the "lifetime" warranty.

Is this true?

REI has/had (I think I bought the last one) 01' Schwinn Fastback Pro w/ full Ultegra for $1099. You might find someone else who has it at that price. My LBS has them in stock and won't go any lower than 1700.
Good luck finding one. I just bought mine this afternoon. REI showed they had two in stock. One in Berkley and one in Seattle and I bought the Seatle one.
