The price seems high, but all pricing is local, and how much do you want it?
"Madstat windshield adjuster, barkbusters, SW-Motech crashbars, SW-Motech skidplate and Trax panniers." These are the only accessories that are worthwhile to me. The other stuff is either ho-hum, or not sure (how bright are the LED turn signals, and do they stand far enough from the headlights to be seen well?). The Heidi tires are great for lots of gravel riding, not so much for highway rides.
Your decision--it looks like a good bike; how does it meet your needs & feeling about the price?
