Few Dura Ace 90X0 questions

Postby Dick Scruttock » Mon Mar 04, 2013 20:47 pm

Trying to decide on a few things with the new Dura Ace groupset that I am going with to replace my Sram Red. First things first:

Mechanical Vs Electrical, what are peoples opinions on the difference between the two latest shimano groupsets? I have tried U DI2 and it was nice but I am not sure the price difference is worth justifying? I have not had the chance to sample the new DA9000 mechanical and as DA9070 is not readily available I wont be able to test that either.

Chat chainset and cassette combo should I look towards? I currently run 50/34 and a 11/25 cassette. I was thinking of maybe 52/38 with a 11/28 cassette? Anyone got any pointers or advice?

DA9000 is the best mechanical gruppo bar none. The only reason I see to go Di2 is for TT bikes.

In regards to chainset and cassette, that's really for you to figure out. DA9k can accommodate all ratios on the standard chainset so you can always change down the line.
