Was that in your original post?  It has the look of a later edit.

I'd love to be encouraging and stuff but am over whelmed with bitterness and jealousy.

My hope is that this is just to see how far the General can be pushed before he explodes and turns out not to be true

I spent some time this morning looking at the Chinese carbon frames.  Why can't they put prices and geometry right on the page?  Remind me what you paid General?

Ultegra 6800 groupset is £550, some midrange wheels, maybe Ultegra are £250, plus £4-500 frame and £100 for the finishing kit, comes to £13-1400.  May be workable if I do it over the course of a few months, especially if I can get £300 or so for the current bike.

£580 for frame, forks, headset, seatpost, seat post clamp, stem, handlebars, paint & delivery. The dollar has weakened against the pound since then so may be even cheaper now. £300 for fancy all carbon wheels - make sure you get nova tech hubbed ones rather than something unbranded - easier to source spares for.
