My full 105 Cannondale Criterium set me back more than that. With the up grades, sounds like you got a deal.

One thing on wanting Brifters is that 7 speed is very hard to find, but 8 sp is plentiful. Chances are your rear drops are only 126mm, but I have been told by several riders who just manually spread the drops to drop in an 8 speed 130mm hub that it has caused no problems. The bikes each have over 2 years of regular use that do this.
