The Apex definitely seemed crisp! But then again, I was comparing to the lower end Shimano groups on... "

Some, not all. I wouldn't trade 8-sp STI in 105, RX100, 600/Ultegra or DA, or any 9-sp Ultegra or DA for a lot of this new stuff, most of it with dual pivot calipers, good cranksets and bottom... "

RobbieTunes replied to the thread WTB/WTT: Dura Ace 7700 rear derailleur, long (medium) cage.
