This is for a full Shimano 105 groupset with everything you need to build up your drivetrain on your bike. This has a lot of the same tech that has trickled down from the Ultegra.

This is from www.ProBikeKit.com and comes with free shipping.

This is much cheaper than I could find on most other websites and it is a very good deal.

You apparently are very ignorant of what many bikes are still running. Old bikes need new drivetrains. New (for the most part) don't. This encompasses most people who are looking to upgrade. That is NOT inclusive of people who just bought their bikes brand new. The only thing on this that is BSA and not BB30 is the bottom bracket. You know how much a bottom bracket costs? Cheap.

Back to my point: if people are "upgrading" their drivetrains, they will need to buy new component. If they just bought a new bike, they probably don't need to upgrade components right off the bat. Your point is very bad. Take your negativity elsewhere. Also, you look dumb right now.

Also, another point. There is no need for a thumbs down. A deal is a deal is a deal. This is a deal whether or not it fits your bike.

T47 is the future anyway. BB30 creaks. this will still fit in bb30 but bb30 will not fit in BSA.

Hey, thanks for the knowledge. I did not know that it was compatible with BB30. Nice info.

Just wanted to clarify that I'm talking about the crankset. to make it work, you would still have to buy a bottom bracket.

Is Shimano 105 a decent groupset? I was looking at a Diamondback Century 1 as my first real roadbike, which I think is all Shimano 105. I can get one new for $700.

Would it be better to buy that and tweak or try to build from the ground up?

You mad bro? You stated yourself that you would have to spend extra on bottom bracket if they buy this...I can get a better deal with BB30 at my local bike store for the equivalent and more updated revision of the same groupset. This stuff is outdated. It's like saying there's a deal for an ipad 2. Also 12-25 is for weaklings and crappy for flats. And if you argue you're a climber, thats the most useless cassette you can have. So you're the one looking pretty dumb without analyzing specs.

Research the 105 and see for yourself. The forums all over are commenting that the 105 has a lot of technology that the Ultegra is outfitted with. Actually, a few places I've seen say that the 105 is the better deal not only because of price but that a lot of people are reporting that they cannot tell the difference in shifting between the 105 and the Ultegra.

I can't speak to the Diamondback as I've only ever ridden my Jamis Xenith and my Merlin Ti but I can tell you that the 105 on my Xenith was very good and that was the older 10 speed model. The 11 speed like this one is is very good. You'll have plenty of fun on your bike. If you can, try to review that bike and find out if it's harsh, flexy, and see if the geometry of the bike works for you. It's really hard to know until you know what kind of ride you like and what fits you. Then after that, you can look at geometry charts and pretty much know right off the bat whether you will like "such and such" bike.

Short answer: yes this is good. You'll probably be able to tell whether cycling is your passion or not fairly quickly.

I have a question. I bought a used 2000 Gary Fisher Paragon on Craigslist (http://www.bicyclebluebook.com/se...x?id=45415), parts are rather worn and I expect some of it will break soon. Should I consider something like this to get it in better/safer condition?

A few grams of weight, but also smooth/quiet/faster shifting. Yeah it's a shame that we feed the industry a crazy amount of cash
for these products, but if we want to play the game, it is what it is.
