Hello!

Anyone seen on-line retailers selling groupsets for the time trial/triathlon
style of bike at reasonable prices?

(eg. not the STI levers, bu the traditional style of lever mounted on the
end of the tri-bars, and a separate brake only lever). Surely this should be
cheaper than road groupsets with the cost of STI levers.

For bar end levers, look for "barcon" they are often called that for
some reason.

When I went from gripshifters to bar ends for the 'bent I just asked
Ian Humphries at flyingfurniture.com.au for them, he had them in stock
I think.

You could always sell off the STI levers that come with the groupset -
eBay would give you a price guide. They aren't cheap as a separate
item but darned good value in a groupset at a special price.
