Not bad. Especially if you don't have to pay tax...
The wheel set is worth at least $250. The grouppo is worth about $500 to $700. The cheap brakes can be replaced easily in the future... The bike is branded.

note that this bike is also sold on Amazon (from Nashbar) for exactly the same price if you get some sort of benefit from ordering from Amazon.

I have run the tektro brakes as well as nicer shimano and sram brakes. If you swap out the brake pads in the tektros to some of the "salmon kool stop" brake pads, you would have all you really need. Roughly $15 or so for 2 pairs of pads I believe.

I've been planning to get a road bike for some time, just wondering if it would be a good idea to buy it just based on the dimensions or is it really worth it to just go to a bike shop and have them do it for you?

Do not buy a bike online unless you know exactly what you need. Go to a bike shop and get fitted and have them recommend you something based on your fit and the riding you want to do.

Updated price; Nashbar is running one of their frequent 25% off site wide through tomorrow, 13-June.
And it looks like 54cm is now sold out.
