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

I am looking to purchase a new road bike and am pretty interested in a Colnago VIP2000. Is anyone out there familier with this bike? What other similar bikes can I consider?
Also, how does a Campagnolo Chorus groupset compare against a DuraAce groupset since both are similarly priced?
I am pretty new to road biking, having only ridden MTBs before. My current road bike is a Trek OCLV with Ultegra parts.
Would really appreciate it if somebody could offer me some advice.
Thanks

Sir,

The Colnago VIP 2000 uses the Columbus Altec Zonal tubeset. There are other manufacturers out there also using this tubeset. As far as the frame it is personal preference. I am not a Colnago and do not see the bikes as nothing special.

As far as Campy vs. Shimano. This is a question that cannot be answered. If you ask 10 people you will get many answers. It depends what you want. Both gruppos are excellent.
