Hi!

A lot of debate around which group set to go for. I have campag, but thinking of changing.
There is this competition tomorrow 01/12, experts talking about mechanical SHIMANO vs. electric CAMPAGNOLO.

I will be there! Event details below:

In a FREE EVENT, Cadence Performance in Crystal Palace gives a unique opportunity to test out 2 significant new product launches from the component industry’s undeniable leaders: Campagnolo Athena EPS and Shimano Dura Ace 9000.

WHEN : This Saturday, Dec. 1st, @ 12:00 noon
WHERE : Cadence at 2a Anerley Hill, SE19 2AA - Crystal Palace. London
0208 676 8825

There’ll be two short presentations from the experts followed by a Q&A session and YOUR CHANCE to test-ride the groupsets afterwards on our Tacx Genius Virtual Reality turbo trainers.

    They all work, so a major factor has to be how the hoods feel, and thats personal preference. The rest is bling.

    Says he with Campag Super Record hahaha

  • Why not Super Record vs Dura Ace 9000 and Ultegra Di2 vs Athena EPS?
  • Why not Super Record vs Dura Ace 9000 and Ultegra Di2 vs Athena EPS?


    Because Super Record has no Shimano equivalent. It's probably around Chorus / Record.

    Who are these 'experts'?

    We can all read the specs of both group sets and as a previous poster has stated, the main differences are personal.
  • Here we go again.

    Cos it's a promotional event designed to sell as much of the most expensive stuff they can and make the most money. You think they re doing it for altruistic reasons?
