Thanks.

The old 8-speed record group was awful. Barely rideable. Hated it. I knew a modern group would immediately make a difference. Weight wasn't a huge concern. I wanted smooth action and reliability.

I was already familiar with Shimano, so I was already leaning towards 6800 (9000 felt like too much of a splurge for this build). The new Force 22 also looked somewhat tempting, despite SRAM QA being famously questionable in the past.

In the end, I found a deal on the 6800 group and wheels that was just too good to ignore, so that, coupled again with familiarity, is what cinched it for me.

Once I had it all set up and took it for the first ride, it was immediately obvious I'd made the right choice. I really, really love 6800. It's like butter.
