There is an overpriced set on ebay right now. You will be hard pressed to find any shop with them in stock.. As for Glorycycles, you will be hard pressed to find anything in stock.

I saw the overpriced set on ebay. That's one of the reasons I'm asking here. $200 is crazy.

I wonder if it's the only place we can buy one, how about craigslist.

He seemed to be the only guy in town that sold them at a reasonable price.

QBP has them in stock, so most shops should be able to get you some. I believe Campy has now set minimum SRPs, so you're likely looking at $275

I only paid $156 with freight for the set, if you have the time just wait if they have another set for sale.

I'm going to have to wait. No, way I'm going to pay over $200.00 I'd rather use Shimano.

If you have Campy components then wait for the deal otherwise Shimano.

I prefer Campy on my road bikes. With that said Shimano flat bar shifters are way more cost effective than Campy. Maybe Campy can shift more production to Romania and start reducing their costs.
