On the short term. In the long run, you'll end up replacing all the stock parts with the parts you really want, so you're paying for the complete bike and
the upgrade parts. I've got a 2008 Cross Check complete, which at this point, the only stock components are the frame/fork/headset, handlebars, shifters and rear hub/spokes.
