Strengths:    Comfortable hoods; excellent brakes, solid crank, precise shifting, quiet, nice to look at, very solid group

Weaknesses:    FD chain-rub

Bottom Line:   
Upgraded from 5600 -105 and a dramatic difference it is. Hoods are easy to get level and comfortable. Shifters have reach adjustment which is needed. If you like them level like me, out of the box the reach to brake lever is little far out and does not have good point of leverage to engage the brakes effectively. Good for feathering the brakes, but not comfortable to apply more force without changing hand position. Shifting is amazing, engage instantly, quiet and 2k miles so far with no miss-shifts. Brakes are exactly what they should be on a bike. Plain solid with good feedback. Crank is stiff. RD is excellent. FD had a contour shaped cage, which made it very difficult to position in correct height relative to chainring, then the contour shape caused alot of rattle in extreme cog positions. Sure, you suppose to do your best to keep the chain straight and ride the middle cogs, however I dont want to think about that when I am riding. I want all usable gears when I need it, especially when ride gets fast and I need to pay attention to the road and other riders. After hours of tinkering, problem was solved immediately after switching it with SRAM Force FD. Overall I am very pleased with the group. If you are considering one I highly recommend it.

Strengths:    Solid craftmanship. Good looks.

Weaknesses:    The LBS told me the brakes won't fit on my 2008 Giant OCR C1

Bottom Line:   
Got the gray compact set (Crank (34/50 – 175mm, Cassette 11-28). Added the 6700 carbon pedals. Two weeks with the group and absolutely no complaints...except the darn brakes won't fit my bike. LBS is looking into similarly valued brakes as substitute. I had my last Ultegra set for four high-milage years. Now, the snappiness is back!

Ultegra 6700/6800 ss, max teeth

The specs say Ultegra 6700 or 6800 rear derails, short cage, max 33t. Would that be the same for compact as well as standard cranks? Thanks.Read More »

Ultegra 6700 RD issues

So I recently swapped all of my Ultegra drivetrain over to my Giant Propel Advanced frame. For the most part everything has worked fine, other than some slight shifting issues with the RD. Drivetrain has around 6000-7500 miles on it. New(ish) cassette (around 2500 miles, in great shape), new chai ... Read More »

Ultegra 6700 shifters and Shadow+ derailleur?

I just built a gravel touring bike with Ultegra 6700 cranks, shifters and FD, and an 11-36 XT cassette that called for a mountain bike RD. As I had read somewhere on this forum that a 10 speed XT or XTR model wouldn't work, I mounted a 9 speed XTR RD instead, and the drivetrain has been working beau ... Read More »

Convert Ultegra 6700 cassette to 6800 11-32?

Would it be simple (i.e. not expensive) to switch out my 11-28 (10 speed) to the new 11-32 (11 speed)? I would like the lower gears for climbing on my 2010 Synapse. Thanks, TBRead More »

Shimano Ultegra 6700 Double 10-Speed Shifter/Brake Lever Set

These things are so easy to use its almost unreal. The effort is minimal and the reported issues of the sluggish feeling attributed to the abrupt cable tubing bending is largely overstated based on my observation. Especially if you couple these with things like gore cable systems. more informati ... Read More »
