    there are none on their site, but I'm sure they can get some.
    Only an extra $180 for Ultegra

    Problem is Oz, everything only costs an extra $180 here, $100 there but this all adds up & keeps you broke. I never envisaged 4 years ago how costly this friken sport can be, I'm thinking no petrol, rego etc, just a bike, water bottle & you’re right to go. Anyway off the soapy, time to put my new shoes together, only cost me $165, should have got some C sole ones, probably only an extra $180:D

    yes, bloody "price creep", I call it, :) but the jump to Ultegra is nowhere near that it is to Dura-Ace. "In % terms"....that's always a great justification to increase the budget :)

    from about 1994 to 2000, I went through a stage where I wasn't buying new parts, and only went to bike shops to buy tyres and chains, etc, so my bike shop visits were just in and out. When I got back into upgrading my bikes, the prices that shocked me the most were of bars and stems!! I bought my Cinelli bar and stem combo in 1992 for $110, then I start seeing bars selling for over $250???!!! I couldn't farkin believe it!!
