First Impressions - New Ultegra 6700

Here's a quick first-ride review on the new generation of Ultegra from

Link: First Ride: Shimano Ultegra 6700 Review

With Dura Ace 7900 moving decidedly up-market to compete with Sram Red and Campagnolo Super Record, it looks as though Shimano is positioning Ultegra 6700 as the new high-end group for the "rest of us" with nearly Dura Ace weight and performance (shades of which we saw with the Ultegra SL remake a couple years ago), I think you'll be seeing a lot more 6700 groups on the local race circuit because of it's affordability with very little performance penalty.

I look to get my hands on 6700 at Interbike this September - 2 months away!

More to come after Interbike!
