Tiagra bike for $750? I wouldn't call that a steal, unless I'm missing something

update: 1st cx today, bike rides and handles like a dream, Tiagra ain't so bad. Was getting random compliments all day. Not many steel frames like this one. Adjustable wheel base looks baddass. Not as retro as the custom steels some folks were rockin, forgot the name.

Tiagra is fine for cross, especially when you stuff it full of mud.
