    Campag.

    An extra sprocket and over £200 cheaper, no contest.

    Get to a bike shop & check the feel of the hoods, secondly have a test ride with Campag if you have not used before, not everyone likes the thumblevers.
    Sram more modern IMHO with the single, double tap system, but I prefer Campag personally.
    My knees hurt !

    Of those 2 I would get the Campag one.

    Have not used Campag but I have Sram Force on the good bike and am very pleased with it.

    I'd go for the Red.

    Don't get me wrong - if it was full red I would say go for it but that is only half red really and it is more expensive.

    Ah, and it weights a bit more as well!

    the campag is a standard chainset, the SRAM is a compact, do you have a preference?

    I've been using Chorus 10 and like the ergos, not so keen on the look of the new ones but as you say it's a full groupset. Also had a compact on for years but riding well at the moment and would like to see how I'd do going back to a standard chainset. Chorus 11 was very weel rated by C+ too.
    Like the Red levers but never used Sram, 1/2 Red 1/2 other Sram, more money but has a compact chainset.
    Swinging back to Campag again now.

    Once I've made this tough decision I've then got to tell the Mrs I'm having a new bike.
    That's right I'm gonna TELL her, not ask, TELL HER.....
