Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Record - Dura Ace: Weight

Keeping all things equal, does anyone know which full grupo is lighter? Is it the Campagnolo Record or the Shimano Dura Ace?

In most cases, Dura Ace has been lighter, but less reliable / more fragile.
The newest Record (with the carbon fibre cranks) will probably beat D/A in the weight, fragility, and cost departments.

They were very close until Campy dropped about 135 grams with the carbon cranks.

Shimano is busy trying to catch up with the triple-10, so may be a while getting around to carbon cranks.

Then there is always the reliability question - not worth a few grams, it seems to me, if you are paying for them yourself.

Cheers...Gary

Definitely Campagnolo 10 sp with carbon crank is much lighter and always reliable for me anyway.

Oh, so you actually have one already? How many miles have you put on it? What is the price on it?

I have 10 sp Record (no carbon crank, yet) for the last two years. That would be around 15,000 km, the same chain and cassette and even cables, not even once I had to adjust gears, just lub and go.
