    any comparative articles about levels of componentry Campy/Shimano.

    Anyone read anything really describing the improvements of components Shimano/Campy from base models to their most expensive...are the most expensive models DuraAce etc. really all that more advanced..? Why? What are their benefits ...Components are usually related to just the drive train...?
    Like you purchase Ultegra. Does that usually include all components such as hubs, bottom brackets, etc..?
    Or just shifters to front/rear derailleurs? appreciate knowing why like Dura Ace shifters are $300 for the pair.? Do most of us use Shimano..
