I think many will pick new Campy Record grouppo over old DA ones, but here's the catch:
D.A. is in Merlin Titanium frame and Record comes in CAAD 6. Both frames in good condition. What's your pick?

Edit: oops, I meant to say.. Two options: ;)

The Merlin frame is worth MUCH more than the CAAD 6. Titanium frames new go for $3500+. The Cannondale CAAD 9 frame is like $800. If pricing is exactly the same for both bikes, get the Merlin and sell off the Shimano if you don't like it.

Dude, Ti man. Keep the DA, I'm sure it rides like a dream. Old DA is still DA quality.

As much as I love Campy, I have to agree with everyone else here: go with the Merlin. You can feel the difference between frames but you won't feel much difference between the components, especially at that level. You can always change it out later if you don't like it.
