jenson usa has a full Ultegra build kit (and I mean full- includes EVERYTHING except the frame and fork) for $759.

Unreal pricing. Anyone ordered one from them? How was it?

I guess it would depend on what you need... some folks might already have their wheelset... or bar... or...

Still, if you're starting completely from scratch... and like the "extras"... and depending on their prices after substitutions and deletions...

Never ordered from them personally but they are big on the MTB scene. I have ordered from PricePoint and Excel... good service.

We abide.

Remain In Light.

I've ordered MTB gear from them and had no problems at all.

just built my bike up with the ultegra build kit from them. it was cheap, shipped fast, and the order was correct. the only problems i had was that they didn't have a 1" headset or italian threaded bottom bracket in stock. two things i would change in that kit are the seatpost (poor design) and the saddle (cheap $5 mtb saddle). other than that it was great - couldn't find a cheaper build kit anywhere.

Never purchased a build kit from them but have received a bunch of MTB and more recently road parts from them. They are pretty new to road gear (I think only started selling road stuff in the last 6 months). Good service, fast shipping, typically good pricing.

I buy mostly MTB items from them. They started dabbling in road stuff recently. Their road selection is really limited and looks like they are trying to blow it out at discounts.

I did pick up an SLR saddle for $60 a few months ago.

I was impressed when I had to return a tire that wasn't round. They shipped the new one before I even got around to sending the bad one back. I'd never seen a bike related online retailer do that.
