Anyone not going to 11speed?

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

There's no point, IMO.

I recently picked up a set of sram red shifters and a new red RD being cleared out (both for less than $300 brand new) so I'd be set if/when my current sram stuff goes. It was mentioned before, I have too much money invested in wheels w/ 10 speed hubs to start dealing w/ this crap. Also, this stuff weighs more.

I am going 11 speed because I think the shifters and crank look a lot cooler than the 10 speed. Yeah, I'm that way.

Just went to 10!

But I would guess that the next time I get a new bike, Centaur will be 11. so I'm sure I will make the switch then.

Here in the flatlands I can think of few less compelling upgrades than going from 10 to 11 speeds. I only need about four cogs any way.

In the middle of building a bike and I had to ask myself if it was really worth it. Decided to go the ultegra Di2 route, sure I could wait till november and get the new 11spd stuff but 10 is plenty fine and my 2011 404's will only accept a 10spd cassette. Not worth going through all of that wasted money and hassle over accommodating an extra gear.

This for me as well
Eventually i will probably convert one day. When 11 is the norm and it's time to purchase a new group i probably won't have much choice but to go 11

currently building a ulteggra 2x9 setup

was basically handed a pair of handle bars that were fully cabled with flight deck that fit my bike perfectly,
i just have to fit my brakes and derailleurs once i find a pair of wheels.
