I didn't keep track of the current build cost -- the all carbon Record phase.

I think it's just as well.
$2k is about where I end up each time, too, either with disc (where I can use my Assaults but the frame and group is more expensive) or with rim (where I need to purchase new wheels). $2k is still a complete built, CF and 105, in my mind, so the notion of it being a budget build just goes out the window. Maybe if I had spare parts sitting around, like some of youse.
