    Very nice !!! Im thinking of buying one , but cant decide between the advanced 1 and 2 . I think the blue looks awesome and the 105 is perfect for my type of riding ..but can I really justify an extra £400 for ultegra ?? decisions decisions ..lol

    There is a website that did a cost effectiveness vs. performance analysis of DA vs Ultegra vs 105 in the 5800/6800 generation.

    I would justify, I upgraded a mixed of 105 and ultegra to full ultegra r8000 groupset on my TCR and it's buttery smooth. I would imagine you have bought your bike already but Id say the £400 is mega worth it.

    The saddle and wheels look like the kind of thing you’d find on a kid’s bike ...
