I bought this during what appears to be a clearance sale. The kit includes everything you need to get rolling, even though the pedals did not include foot retention and are probably only included for "test ride" purposes in any case. I am probably going to end up changing every last component on this bike apart from the headset and seatpost, but it was nice to get these parts to ride around on in the meantime. None of my minor problems were enough to deter from the excellent value this complete bike build kit presents though.
Incidentally, the bike arrived the day after I ordered it, which was also a nice surprise.
