Over priced. Assuming no shipping costs, that's about $1,777USD. Given that you can buy the from the MashSF store at $875 (more expensive than you can really find it for if you do your homework), that leaves you with around $850. It takes around $400 to build a fancy wheelset and that leaves $450 with you to spend on bars, stem, seatpost, seat, tires/tubes, grip. In my opinion, $450 to spend on those last components is a bucket load of money, but to some, they'll buy a $200 saddle. Depending on how expensive your taste is, it may make sense to buy the bike, but given that you've chosen that to look at with its mediocre components, chances are you're in a similar boat to me.

End point: Putting in your own work to a build is always cheaper than buying someone else's build. Plus, its exactly how you want it.

That is extremely overpriced. I ordered mine through Ben's cycle and got 15% off. Use the coupon code : "SEARCH15" it should still be valid. Buy your own components and be patient through ebay and your local sales. It's plenty worth it. Plus that bike will be sent to you in pieces anyway so it's not much extra work.

im starting to think ALL these dudes that come in and their first post is about a certain "deal" are all representatives of that website/company.

Its a very nice bike. Seems to be about the ballpark price a built up bolt goes for just from googling...maybe slightly higher price but probably depends on your country.
