I may put the spare DT Swiss 1900s that my Cannondale Synapse had as standard fitment.
I used Sora earlier this year and was pleased with its performance.
Lots of 'trim' for front derailleur.
Longer amount of lever needed for shifting up the cassette as compared with the snappier Ultegra but that is no real issue.
