Podium Club: Dura Ace Component Groups!

New, 17 comments

Our first offer to our new Buyers' Club comes courtesy of our erstwhile partner in the Podium Club:

Pretty memorable name. And no, they are not part of the vast, sprawling Podium Cafe Empire. Anyway, on to the important part:

Members of the Podium Club can buy a complete Shimano Dura Ace group for only $995.00! This complete kit includes crankset, bottom bracket, STI brake/shift levers, brake calipers, front and rear derailleurs, chain and cassette. And this is WAAAY below retail.

Details on the flip:

The first offering is a complete 8-piece Shimano Dura Ace component group for only $995.00 (California residents add sales tax). Not that it needs much introduction, but Dura Ace is arguably the world's number one road cycle component group (unless you're a Campy snob), and is employed by probably half the bikes you see in the Pro Tour. This offer is for a complete kit that includes double crankset (specify length), bottom bracket (specify threading), STI brake/shift levers, brake calipers, front and rear derailleurs, chain and cassette (specify gearing). Typical retail price is $1300... so this is a pretty amazing price.
