I'm not following.. If Ultegra can be found at a US e-tailer, presumably selling for the approx. $700 I referred to, and this represents MAP supposedly, then 105 I would think would sell for some amount less than this at MAP, and Tiagra even lower than this. Ie. a complete bike with 105 for $600-700 wouldn't be that terribly common.
Even so.. if you can't buy from the UK, you have to be able to buy it somewhere, don't you?
