Regardless what bike you buy. If it doesn't fit your size, you will not enjoy it.

Damn that's cheap!

Never mind, not DuraAce Di2 and no large or medium sizes.

Quote from InLimbo View Post :
There is a massive difference between a $300 bike and even a $1000 one. You might as well make the claim that it doesn't make any sense to buy a nicer car than a Ford Focus or a tablet better than one of the $40 ones they sold at Micro Center.
Depends on the rider and the style. Some idiots think that they are smart getting a 2k xc bike when they should have spent 500 on a years prior hybrid model that would be a superior ride. When you start getting to a certain price point you are just paying for lighter components that can sometimes break easier. The sweet spot is a aluminum bike, suited to your terrain, with a proper fit/size, good rear derailleur and just above entry level componentry. So hunt for a year prior model in the 400-600 price range that was 999 retail and you will have a good bike for about 90% of the people out there. I have had $2000, $1000, $500, $200, $100 bikes and right now the $1000 bike is about all I would ever need and there is not a huge difference that I can tell between that and my $500 one but since I got it for 35-40% off I splurged some.

I 'save' with deals from this site so I can buy a +$1k bicycle.
Just bc we're cheap with everyday item or like to save, doesn't mean we won't spend thousands on a carbon fiber road bike.
It depends on where your priorities are.
I'd dump thousands on a new set of rims for my car but buy cheap consumables(clothes, shoes, food, etc)
But some people would not or have the disposable income to have everything they own be top notch.

I never understand the need for people to threadcap these types of posts. I admittedly know nothing about bikes, but I understand enough about math to know that 56% off sure seems like a pretty good bargain. At the end of the day, the method to the SD madness is to find things for much cheaper than the price they traditionally sell for. If thats a $400 electronic item for $250, great. If its a $500 piece of furniture for 350, awesome. If its a $10,000 watch for $5,000, super. It is about getting something you want/need for less. If there is someone who wants that watch (or in this case this bike) and had given even a moments thought to paying MSRP for it, a deal like this is without a doubt a SLICKDEAL! Granted, this Hot Deals forum has become more and more full of impulse buys, but occasionaly a deal like this comes up and if it saves just 1 person a couple thousand dollars, then I personally feel it is 100% a slickdeal.

Noooo, actually what I'am saying, is that its ridiculous to post this bike deal here on a forum where being a tightwad reigns supreme. Its just as stupid as posting a $1000 steak deal at Costco or making a post about them having a sale for Rolls Royce Phantoms and presenting it to people when they pick up their EBT cards at Social Services.
You could dip a Huffy bike in 14k Gold and say there is a world of difference because its been dipped and sealed in gold too, but if your primary target audience is a bunch of cheapskates, its going nowhere, bottom line. laugh out loud

Better hurry before its OOS... LMAO

Wow, it's rare to see so much abject ignorance packed into such a tight package. Plus the presumption to speak for the rest of us AND a rather insulting comparison between SD forum readers and EBT card-toting Social Services clients. We just may have redefined 'egocentricity' here.

To many, cycling is a serious recreational endeavor, as others are committed to skiing. Or surfing, or golf. Spending $1000 or even $5000 for a quality road bike is no less reasonable than spending that much on downhill equipment, or golf clubs and associated accessories.

Nor is it unreasonable for serious cycling enthusiasts to participate in forums such as Slickdeals in order to save money on a notebook computer, or a front loading washing machine. Not sure what strand of logic would lead anyone to believe those two interests are somehow mutually exclusive.

Thanks OP! Had I not just purchased a bike 2 months ago, this would have been one I would have seriously considered.

Anyone know what the total weight is for this bike is with a 58 cm frame? Looks like a good deal with the Di2 stuff. That alone costs a ton!

For those who know anything about bikes this is a great deal on a DI2 equipped bike. Just be aware that this is the 10 speed Ultegra version and not the most recent 11 speed. They use the same signalling protocol though some some parts can be mixed and matched if you want to upgrade at some point.

As a cycling enthusiast, I would like to magically pop into existence and confirm that we do indeed frequent slickdeals. My yearly budget for cycling and triathlon stuff is about 5-10k per year which is posible because I save money in other areas so that I can spend it towards my hobbies, whose money to enjoyment ratio is much higher then toliet paper and gadgets that I'll never use; okay fine, maybe toliet paper gives me better enjoyment.

And really, the cost of an item should be balanced agianst the usage of said item. When you start spending 20 hours a week enjoying the outdoors via a bicycle, even if you are paying 5k for a bike, your hourly cost over a year is only 5$. That is cheaper entertainment per hour then going to the movies. Ultimately, assuming you don't get hit by a car, you make back the cost in lack of healthcare payments.
