Was buying gloves...

when I saw a 07' Fuji Team Pro, Ultegra, Dura-Ace, Compact carbon crank set, Shimano 550 wheel set. 1999.00. Is this a steal or not?

I never heard of a Fugi. Is it similar to a Fuji?

Now that we've had our fun, its possible to get your hands on 07 Dura-Ace bikes for $1500 or therabouts. Now that may not buy good will at the LBS so the difference in price will have to be weighes against that.

Not sure if this compares but last year I bought my gf a Fuji Team Superlight w/Ultegra for $1500 at the LBS. FWIW, the thing is under 17 lbs. and she loves it.

Must be a new member- Most of us would have bought the bike and then asked if it was a good buy.
