My rear derailleur is shot and I have to decide what to do.
I currently have a Shimano 600(ultegra) that I killed in
about 5000 miles (I race tri's, and ride a lot of hills in
training). I have a few queations...
1. Should I "upgrade" to Dura-ace or continue to buy
more 600s? If I do go to DA I would have to buy new
shifters? The gain really doesn't out weigh the cost.
2. Should I "downgrade" to 105s. If I'm going to
be buying alot of them I should keep the $ down.
3. Should I go to Mavic 840? Great durability and ability
to replace parts as they wear. Also, what shifters
are compatible? Are the 600 shifters compatible?
I will have to say that cost is a big factor but not critical.
I'm looking for great performance and durability. I don't want
something that will start getting tempermental in a race.
If you have good reasons to buy Campy, let me hear it. If so,
which model, etc.
Thanks for you help
