FYI, I looked at the PCS-9 weight, I found 45kg stated somewhere while that one at Pushys is 20kg.

Correct, however for most road bikers 20kg is ample; and as nice as the PCS-9 looks, who really needs three? If you were going to get three though, 'mega15' discount code brings them down even further to $74.22 each.

You can also currently get 105 cranks from PBK for about $90 each, only problem is you need to buy 8!

No one needs 3, but I'd be willing to split an order with 2 other Sydneysiders if the PCS-9 comes back in stock. $74 is a good price.

Great... now they're all sold (the PCS-9, not the other one ;) and not showing up at all =P
If anyone in Perth wants to pass one or more on, raising my hand.

Did you successfully place an order? It's showing as $450 for me now and I can't select a size or add to cart.

Yes. Order went in, receipt received, so I think I got one.

Have you tried the ones from a few pages ago? Might still work....
20 - over 100 pound purchase (20% off list price)
12-extra - over 200 pound purchase (12% of basket price)

PBK has 3 for 2 on a bunch of Shimano components. Included in the deal is an Ultegra Di2 Groupset (excluding crankset).

After the 3 for 2 and 'mega15' additional 15% discount that brings the cost of three groupsets to $2875 or around $960 each delivered.

Anyone for a group buy?

Don't forget you'll be hit with GST and duty so add on another ~$150/groupset and it ain't that much of a good deal.

Correct, as per the post. If someone can point me in the direction of a cheaper UDi2 groupset I would greatly appreciate it. The best I have seen them with crankset (which I don't need) is closer to $1500.

Bummer I forgot about the duty tho...

Hi,

Merlin have the full ultegra DI2 for $1440 or thereabouts.

They might split the buy over two purchases if you ask nicely :wink:

If you can wait Ultegra 11sp Di2 has just been announced. So it should lead to clear out prices on current stock as we get closer to release date.
