    I had it on 3 bikes and loved it. Never gave me any problems.
    Some people are just like Slinky's. Not really good for anything but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

    I think the common consensus is that 6600 was just as good if not better than 6700. Non-underbar cables don't look very clean on 6600 but the shifting sure was great. Also, I never liked the look of the 6700 crank.

    I have 6500 on one bike. I got it used more than a year ago, the components must be almost ten years old. Actually, the whole bike was so heavily used the frame had been warrantied and the wheel died a few months after I bought it. Group set obviously has not been babied, the corner of one of the shifters is broken, but it seems purely cosmetic. Anyway, it works great.
    Don't believe everything you think.

    Is 6600 the one with the dark finish? If so, I've got 25K+ miles on mine and it still works fine.

    6600 was last model before new cable routing system, so it should be the best of that generation's model. I had 6500 and 6700, and 6500 was way better in terms of shifting. 6700 cranks were better though, much stiffer.

    Or, to put it another way, 6500 it were an good, 6700 not good shift, it was issues.

    6500 could have shifter problems, 6600 is perfection

    My 6700 group shifts much better than my 6500 group, but they're both pretty good.
