    I am building a frame (hillbrick) and want to buy an Ultegra group set (not whole wheels hubs only) and want to know where the cheapest place to buy it. <br />Is it worth looking overseas, exchange rates, hassels?<br /><br />I have looked at alot of Aus sites<br />Phantom Cycles<br />Bicycling direct<br />Plympton cycles<br /><br />So what advise do you all have<br /><br />Thanks Rod Child (Cambelltown)

    Update so far,<br /><br />The cheapest place i can get a groupst for is 637 US$ inc Hubs for ultegra. that is $1087 Aus, it is $90 Aus for delivery, this is a saving of around $500, they seem to be the go, i will also buy pedals etc off them as well.<br /><br />www.tourdefrance2.org<br /><br />The dutch site seemed cheaper but i can't read dutch, and couldn't see what was included in the groupset?<br /><br />Rod

    Its important to know whats included in the price you mention<br />Salden does front and rear derailleur, sti shifters, crankset(complete), casette, chain,brakes<br /><br /><br />So no hubs no, kopserie(don't know english word the stuff to make your steer turn around)<br />no seatpost and no pedals like most offers from other shops

    Someone mentioned totalcycling.com in Ireland, but I can't find the posting again. Anyway, they are offering an Ultegra groupset for $500US, excluding hubs. Hubs are about another $85US.
