$200 for 5700 shifters is nuts. Thats 2 generations old at this point. r7000 and 5800 STIs can be found online for less than that.
REI offers 10% or 15% (cant recall exact) off if you purchase 3 or more cycling components together. But you are right in that I was missing the brakes from my comment.
