Shimano on Sale at Wiggle

I just picked up a set of 9-speed Sora STI shifters for $69.99 on Wiggle, they're having a January Sale with lots of Shimano components included. They also have a $10 off purchases of $50 or more for new customers with a coupon code Wiggle10. My shifters ended up being $58.71 out the door somehow. I have been looking at these brifters for a while and they are like a hundred bucks more on Amazon and not nearly that cheap on eBay. Anyway, just wanted to pass along this deal to my fellow riders who who might be doing winter a build.

What's the final cost with shipping? I often see they have excellent pricing on components...

$58.71 shipped. I chose the free shipping option. Not sure if they charge customs fees or anything after the fact, as I've never ordered from one of these UK sites before. After the order went through, I realized I should have grabbed the Sora FD for the future just in case while it was also on sale. D'OH!

In a rare ability to match, jenson has sora stis on sale for the $59. Its an odd moment when a domestic retailer can match overseas for shimano components.

My wife's road bike has a 3500 drivetrain, its excellent.

Glad to hear that. I'm putting the Sora brifters on that Univega frame when it comes back from powercoating.

Ha, I saw a reference elsewhere that you were getting it powdered.

So conflicted! That paint was awesome!...but it was also unique and an acquired taste for sure. Its great that the frame has worked out for you, always nice to see bikes(or frames, really) continue in so many different ways while in the hands of others.

What did you go with for color?

I love the frame, it fits great and does what I need it to do. But I do not love the paint, very dated to a certain point in history. I chose a shade called New Burgundy. A couple shades lighter than the color of your Black Mountain Cycles frame. Seems like every time I go to a gravel ride, most everyone has these showroom fresh gravel/cyclocross bikes.

Get an updated pic on the 'show yous gravel bike' thread when you are done! I bet that with the black Sora will look sharp.
