    I bought a bike with Ultegra at Christmas and the difference from my other bike with Sora is huge. As many others have suggested I think Dura-Ace would be over kill. Imho I would go for Ultegra [:D]

    Top Bhoy - please enlighten me about where I said don't consider campag? I've no problem with anyone's choice of components and have bikes kitted out with both brands. Just don't start another boring............too many posts are one sided and subjective and it's boring because the same (often derogatory),comments get thrown in.<hr height="1" noshade id="quote"></blockquote id="quote"></font id="quote">

    With your quickness to jump into a thread where nothing has happened and with a comment of little worth, you obviously feel a need to 'police' this forum. Your keen interest is much appreciated I'm sure by those who operate the site. I would simply prefer you to keep your thoughts to yourself as its.....yawn......zzzzzzz!

    This is my bike:

    Look at the first reply to the original point, seems to be a reasonable consensus on my thoughts. OK no slanging match had actually started but nothing unique about my comment, plenty of people despair when they start up. I'll consider myself well policed though.

    Alright, one final thing about Campagnolo. I've been using Shimano Rapid Fire shifters, and found that the transition to Ergo levers was much easier than to Sti because the shifting action with Campagnolo levers is close to my beloved Shimano mtb shifters.

    10 speed Mirage looks excellent value, as does the new Tiagra groupset.

    Now let's all listen to the Craig Charles Funk and Soul show before getting angry :)

    Last week's Cycling Weekly did a "sports bike of the year" award, which did some of the Campag/FSA/Shimano comparison.

    Bear in mind that this is again, someone's opinion, albeit a cyclo-hack but I was surprised to note that they said words to the effect of "go for Ultegra over 105, because it shifts smoother".
    I didn't notice much difference between 105 and Ultegra. It would have only cost me 100 notes to upgrade 105->Ultegra, but I had to draw the line somewhere!

    I think this was the article that also echoed my thoughts on levers - I did a test last night - I have to throw the 105 levers further over to shift, than I do with the Campag levers.
