Awesome frame. The stock groupset is Ultegra/105 level, but for the FSA crank. I would replace the stock discs, though; they were howlers (at least on mine). Wheels are worth an upgrade from stock. The frame is Trek's 600 series carbon, one step down from top of the line carbon Trek offers. The Boone 5 frame was the same as the Boone 7 and the top-end Boone 9 (now discontinued). The only difference was the paint. Katie Compton rode that frame to win multiple CX championships. I think it can get you to and from work in supreme style.
