Supply me with a Reynolds Ouzo Pro fork and Chris King headset at rrp or below and then mail 'em to Serotta for painting and building onto a new frame. Buying the aforementioned thru them apears to be well over market rate.
The price of the options is something that they factor intobill

their total price structure. I would talk to them before you do anything like that. Yeah, you may be able to get them to do it that way this time. But, as a guy in retail told me a long time ago when I thought that I had outmaneuvered him on a deal, and maybe I had, you can do that to a guy once. After that, he sees you coming. Not that you'll be buying mountains of Serottas, but one of the things about buying from a smaller builder is that you can develop a little bit of a relationship and maybe get a break down the line if something needs fixed or whatever. Just think about it.
