Others will be able to provide better insight than I to the background on the Gran Rally, but I'll chime in here first. As you acknowledge, the bike is likely over priced. That said, I own a Gran Rally, which though an earlier model equipped with Shimano 600EX (Arabesque) gruppo is a great ride and a bike I like a good deal. For reference sake, mine came my way for $40 last year in the Boston area (an unusually fine deal I believe), and I think you could certainly find an arguably better bike for the $400+ that that one would cost you shipped, but if it is a bike you really want I doubt the ride and component quality will let you down.

Just 2 cents...
