The good thing about BD is you usually get a full group as named, not just the derailleurs and levers. In other words the brakes and crank aren't substituted with lower end stuff like for many LBS brand name offerings. That is a big plus. I am pretty sure you will like the specification of the bike when you look over all the details.
