Look for opinions here... my winter/backup bike is a decent mid-2000s Specialized Allez running on Dura Ace 7800. I may have the extra parts available soon to change to Ultegra 6800 (including wheels).

I actually love the DA 7800 on this bike, everything is very smooth. And I don't *really* care about the 11th cog. However, I do appreciate the hidden cable routing of the newer generations of stuff.

I've ridden plenty of 6800 and DA 9000 stuff already, I actually feel like the shifting is smoother on my 7800 but ultimately want to keep the bike maintainable.

What would you do?
