    Hi everyone, my yellow 2008 Raleigh rx 1.0 was stolen from my work in Georgetown (DC) last week, so I am in the market for a new exercise bike.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Specialized-Allez-with-full-Shimano-Ultegra-56cm-/200937287028

    This frame comes with a bit of components already; with shipping I can get it for ~$400 and complete it with average components for <$250. Is it a good deal? It looks like a nice frame with medium use, but great components (Ultegra and others). It MSRP'd in 2006 for $1,700.

    Thanks a million! -Alex

    Looks like it sold for $355 plus shipping. Add a couple hundred for a 9-speed chain, cables, and some decent wheels. It wasn't a bad deal.

    Yep, I won it! Got some great components on sale from Nashbar on the 4th; looking forward to putting it all together.
