If anyone cares; I went for a 2nd hand set of Eurus from the LBS. Put them on a new 2012 Pinarello FPQ Quattro, Black on Black with Chorus gruppo. Very happy so far.

Thanks guys. Am considering replacing the stock Veloce on a new Pinarello with a Chorus gruppo which is a mixture of new/near new for $650. The longevity you guys have reported is encouraging.
