Not safe. Maybe the 8000 series or something. They're starting to get all mixed up now.Safe to say this will be the 6900 series?

My guess is that they'll have levers just like Dura-Ace. Same size/shape more or less no matter what brakes or shifting you choose. Same with everything basically. A copy of what Dura-Ace is doing with heavier materials and you know the deal.
I think it looks quite similar to what is out now, the 6800 stuff. Not a huge departure in color or design. Looks like Ultegra and Dura-Ace are going to be looking quite similar.
Some lighter cassettes for Ultegra would be nice.
6800 is about to reach epic value levels soon.
I have a build I was about to start, but I think I might wait until prices drop on the 6870 stuff.
I didn't think those are dual sided really - they create dual sided information based on crank position but it's a single strain gauge not dual.FSA Powerbox alloy is running around $600 with rings at most UK sites with the carbon version around $850; Power2Max type S is around $900 with rings.
Oh OK. I wasn't sure what you were driving at. Now I understand.I thought the only reason/time MTB ders could work with STIs was R785...which worked because the R785 were unbranded/tiered components.
Did S let Ultegra 6870 etc work too? Last I knew it didn't or only kind-of-sort-of depending on the config.
