Thanks. I think for the $50 difference, I might stick with the Shimano, and the dual levers, as I am just used to that type. Hope to order it and have it in a week or so. I love the 2012 color, but I'm sure the white bar wrap will not last long :-)
I had a bike-fit last week. Told me I need 44" bars, and this has 42. I'll probably wait until I need to wrap the bars, then switch to 44".
BTW, I spent $190 last week for the Fit and adjustments to the 1.5 (which I can transfer to the 3.1). If any of you are having pain or numbness, I highly recommend this. Best money you will ever spend. While I was not too far off on my setup, I found out my left leg is slightly longer than the right. This had me reaching slightly and swinging my right leg out on the down-stroke. Adjusted my cleats and shimmed the right one. What a difference! I am also trying out an Adamo Century saddle due to numbness, and it's made quite a difference. Tail bone was a little sore after the first few rides, but no numbness and pain in the usual area, and the tail bone pain has subsided. This was almost a 3 hour process, and I am so glad I did it!

(There Doug, a shameless plug for you!
