    anywhere to find NOS groupsets?

    Howdy, I'm in the market for new old stock shimano 105 components. I've found bits and pieces here and there but I'm thinking there have got to be some more complete sets out there, since plenty of these most likely were not sold.

    Wondering if anyone out there knows of websites or any other places that might specialize in carrying NOS stuff...

    maybe just a pipe dream...but I'd be happy to buy 5 year old components for half the price.

    A few years ago, Price Point often had previous generation Shimano parts at good prices. For whatever reason, they seem to have discontinued that practice. Currently, a few ebay sellers have Ultegra SL stuff for sale but prices aren't great. Personally, I like Shimano 9 speed parts, but it seems the NOS ones cost as much as the newer. Look better, tho, IMO.

    Local bike shops may still have old stuff, they rarely ever sell everything.

    You could probably get a NOS 105 group through a shop that deals with Euro-Asia Imports. EAI is known for keeping old stuff around. They're friends- I worked there 20 years ago and they still have boxes of old Shimano that I labeled. I guarantee that it won't be cheap. Any "half-price" old parts will have long since passed through Nashbar and the like.
