I have an old (but still beautiful) bike and want to put new components on it. I'm not spending the ridiculous money on Dura-Ace or SRAM Red, but I want good stuff. I've read many places that Force and Ultegra offer performance close to that of their top of the line counterparts. The difference is mainly weight savings. I'm certainly not at the level where a few grams are worth a few hundred dollars.
I was hoping to get some opinions as to which most people feel is the better group. FORCE or Ultegra. It seems they're pretty close in price most places. I know Shimano has the track record but it seems like SRAM is coming on strong. Thanks very much for any input.
