($550) Sale of Rival group (+FSA cranks)

Where do you find these suckers? Around my neck of the woods, Rival pull-off can't get that for sure, even with a crankset.

Just checking eBay completed listings.....I've seen a few recently sell around that price that didn't have brakes, but had cranks or vis-versa.

I am preferring the fit of the Allez. $880 without having to take anything apart is more appealing plus the fit works for me.

Yeah if you justo want a frameset and not have to deal with 'headache' of taking bike apart and selling parts off, the Allez E5 is a great bang for the buck. Especially since most Specialized dealers will see it for $800. Not sure of another new frame that will offer the same bang for the buck at that price.
