cassette $350, shifter $700, FD $140, RD $280, not to mention having to get new wheels! Looks like a very expensive upgrade to me! It's the latest and greatest syndrome again. :~(

Give it a few months. Also, wait for the Ultegra version and use that cassette for every day.

But you wouldn't buy from Competitive Cyclist unless it was on sale, why would you pre-order from them? If you want to be the first with the latest gear, you need to pay through the nose.

Agree they always put it preorders at max price to suck in fans. In reality they get stock no quicker than others. Wait and ride what you got till a few places have it and prices settle.
