For less than that price you could get full carbon with Ultegra gears and brakes. It's much easier to remove/refit the wheel with Ultegra when you get a puncture. Any bike shop worth it's salt will fit compacts and larger cogs on your cassette at no charge.
I have an XDS 800 full carbon Ultegra gears etc and love it. I believe they currently retail at about $2200. Bought mine at Star Cycles Elizabeth. If thats too far try Road Rage on Payneham Road and I believe there is a shop down south that sell them but not sure which one
Complete Cycles aren't big on XDS roadies
By this do you mean they don't like them or just don't carry stock?
I have a CR1 HMF Team. Great bike. What size do you need? Im having a no road bike summer so rather than have it sitting around gathering dust I could be talked into selling it. With Power Meter!
