Looks like a good deal. Any ideas?

I wouldn't. Only Ultegra shifters and front/rear derailleurs. Crank, bottom bracket, and brakes are probably junk brand. Wheels aren't great either. pretty heavy.

Yeah, that's the problem with most of the retailers. You don't get the full set of components at the same level unless you build your own.

I'm very confused as to why they're hiding the brakes, cassette, and cranks

Read the page, it should be clear...

The MAP price for the parts alone is $2200+

Good looking out, JoshV8582. So much for the doubters, looks like Full Ultegra, which makes this IMHO a pretty slick deal. Other poster who claimed Mavic Ksyrium wheels are "heavy" is smoking crack.

Weight : 1690 grams

Due to MAP, didn't use to be like this a few months back I believe.

This is a helluva deal. Don't know why it isn't frontpage. Not too long ago there was a GT Bikes GTR Di2 for $2500 + TAX that was frontpage, but that one was only 20 speed... This one is $500 cheaper, 22 speed, and NO TAX, but not frontpage? Doesn't make any sense.

Thanks, bought one! Plan on swapping the frame, anyone interested in buying just the frame?

Pretty sure there's sales tax for 25 million Texans. A hundred and sixty bucks is nothing to sneeze at.EEK!

Ha! That's what you get for living in Texas! LMAO Just kidding. No hate.hug Well at least there's no tax in 48 states. Still a way better deal than the $2500 GTR even if you have to pay the tax.

LMAO Wow. Are you for real? I'm sure that whole 100 grams (if that) you're saving with a Dura-Ace C24/C35/C50 wheelset will save you .0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 of a second on your climb.laugh out loudlaugh out loudlaugh out loudlaugh out loudlaugh out loud

Yeah, that 74 degrees yesterday was a real pain!

You're right! That's a LOT of bike for two grand!

These are often found on sale at $250 from Nashbar - 200g lighter and roll perfectly. On a graded climb, this will save you 5-10 secs per mile. If that is important to you or not depends on personal choice. It would be very important to me.

1200 bucks shipped for full Di2 group set. Can be found less, but this was handy (you have to choose USD and destination US). I have bought from them. Got it in a week.

You are basically paying $550 for tires, frame, fork, headset, seat, seatpost, handle bars and stem. Whether that's a good deal or not is again personal choice.

With the new information that it is full ultegra, this becomes a darn good deal. My point tho, is that there are other options, if you want personalization (e.g. I would probably want to get my own seat and maybe a seatpost, depending on the setback of what is included)
