That's true with the rear derailleur, so you have to mix and match a bit: If you pair a Super-ace left brifter with Lightweight RD, then a Record-Red right brifter with an electric Di2 11 speed FD...works great, especially with a SRAM Pista crankset. Of course you have to figure out the chain issue cause the standard UN10 wont fit on the 1/8" ring, but hey lightweight comes with some penalties ;)

You mean the best group that no one's actually ridden yet so there's no way to make a decision informed by anything more than "oooooooh pretty" and press releases?

I'm going with fred on this one.

I think Campy Centaur gives you alot of value for the money as long as you are OK with staying with a 10 speed. There are no complaints about that on my end.

Campagnolo Super Record 11speed...(actually, all of Campy's 11 speed groups)

I really didn't think it would be that much better than my 2001 Record with a 07 Chorus compact crank...but it is sooo sweet and silky smooth shifting/braking. Not only does it perform flawlessly, it looks so sexy and gorgeous (especially on my 595 Ultra)!!

I have '09 rival, and like everything but the lack of small ring trim.

I think I'm gonna get campy next time I am in the market for a groupset. (five or so years from now ~_~)

I miss that too. Ironically, the '08 Rival had small ring trim and they got rid of it (moved the trim to the big ring).

My vote for the best grouppo of 2009 is Campagnolo Chorus 11 speed.
