bike-discount was the cheapest by far for my 105 groupset a couple of weeks ago - and unlike Merlin you are not limited on crank lengths and cassette ratios

think it was £320 delivered (ex VAT, delivered to Channel Islands)

only wrinkle was that the front mech is braze on, so I had to buy a £5 adaptor (no big deal, but was not made aware of type until it was delivered). also there was no option of English or Italian threaded BB (it was English thankfully)

Be aware that Shiny bikes have received some criticism on this forum recently.

I got a great deal on a SRAM Apex groupset from Fudges Cycles:

I ended up ordering the wrong band size front mech, and they were really helpful in sorting it out for me. They delivered really quickly as well. Highly recommended.
