Strength:

Smooth shifting - when the system is adjusted and parts have very little use or wear.

Weakness:

Compared to the Shimano systems of the past - I've owned RSX, 105, 9 spd DuraAce and 9 spd Ultegra - it is a poorly constructed system. The rear derailleur has to be readjusted much more frequently than past systems. The front derailleur is HIGHLY sensitive to dirt, moisture or sweat and must thoroughly cleaned after even the shortest of rides in order to get 1500 miles. The rear derailleur, while not as sensitive as the frt der, still requires constant upkeep and adjustment. The shifters are also HIGHLY sensitive to moisture and sweat. Plan on replacing the right shifter within 10K miles and if you use your small ring, the left one within 12K-15K miles. Cables corrude VERY easily and last about a year to two years. In three years every component except crank/chainrings, brake calipers and left shifter have had to be replaced and the left shifter is about done and will need replacing very soon.

Strength:

Fantastic value and quality. Inexpensive to replace cassette and chain, when needed.

Weakness:

Front and rear shifting not quite as crisp as Dura Ace 9000-series.

Installed on a secondary bike recently. Pleasantly surprised at the performance of the components. Handsome-looking group, although short of the beautiful Dura Ace line. I plan to ride this gruppo in inclement weather, expecting durability as well as less cost to replace the parts that will surely wear-out sooner. A real winner of a groupset - buy with confidence.

Strength:

Flawless shifting, both front and rear. Very light effort required and relatively short strokes. Simple trim, if needed, on both chain rings. Hoods are not bulky, and have a very well thought out shape. Levers also well shaped, and operate very smoothly, resulting in well modulated, low effort stops. Good selection of gearing available.

Weakness:

None

Di2 unnecessary.

Strength:

Crisp Shifting, Reduced effort breaking and improved hand positioning.

Weakness:

Used to ride Ultegra 6500 and never needed to trim the gears.

Fantastic group set. Does virtually everything flawlessly, better value and more durable than Dura Ace, When they make it this good why go electronic?
