Sounds like you got quoted very close to CDN list price. I just bought a ciclo, but with the Campy. Marinoni is the Canadian Distributor for Campagnolo, hence their std spec on the ciclo is Campy. They may not get a great price on Shimano groupo's.
The frame is extaordinary ! Very very comfortable. I have the stock geometry, but got to pick my own paint. For '07 the paint options have changed, and so have the decals. Some of the model names have changed as well.
For a hand built Columbus-tubed frame from north america, I think they're great value. Lots of nice touches: chromed chainstay and dropout, pump peg on headtube, rack eyelets, carbon fork with fender eyelet, the chainstay bridge is threaded for a fender bolt too. The ciclo is a proven favourite of the Audex/Rando circles. I can't wait to get some long country miles on mine this summer.
