Best deal on bike with a good frame and 105?(9 posts)

Best deal on bike with a good frame and 105?GregFeld

I've been poking around online and I'm trying to find a great deal on a bike with a good (pref steel but alum is OK) frame and at least 105 parts.

supergo.com has a Ti mongoose with 105 for $1300, but that'a little steep. Looks like you can get an Iron Horse Glory here and there pretty cheap too. What's the best deal you can find out there?
Excel has the Gios Megalite . . .DCW

with Campy Veloce for $1099. It's not exactly named accurately and has a chromed steel fork, but I'll bet it's a nice ride. The same frame with Ultegra and a Reynolds Ouzo fork is $1439. With 105 and a steel fork, you're probably in the Veloce price area.
BikesDirect.com has Ultegra Bike for $1095!!!joeg26er

Why get 105 and a steel fork?

I found this Motobecane Lechampion at bikesdirect.com.
Says it has a full Ultegra group, aero bladed spoke wheels and a CARBON aero fork and a 2.7 lb frame!

It seems almost too good to be true - must be some kind of introductory offer or something.

You could probably buy the bike - sell the Ultegra and have a Dura-Ace bike for $1500 and even have money left over to get some really high-end bar, stem and seatpost.
Why are you so intent on promoting BikesDirect.com?giveItUPalready

Try www.gvhbikes.com. You can even get complete full Ultegra bikes for less than $1300.

Check out the GT ZR 3.0 for $800 at www.chucksbikes.com . I'm thinking about one (which means I shouldn't tell everyone and his mother about the deal, huh? lol).
