If there's any chance you could add in Ultegra 6700? That would be very interesting - especially for comparing to Ultegra Di2
I inserted it into the list in the original post. Total group weight it went in 10th place ahead of only 6770. Price it went in first as least expensive. Trimmed weight was 8th.
Is the overall weight for Chorus typed wrong, or has it been put in the wrong position in the list?
Overall weight was correct, I just stuck it in the wrong spot on the list.
Hm, I thought that NEW Sram RED 2012/2013 was supposed to be 200g under SR! Are we really talking about the NEW stuff 2012/2013 or 2011/2012 model year before overhaul?
Thanx for clearing it to me.
Yes it is the new 12/13 Red. But I went back over my numbers and found that I had somehow mistyped a couple times. I entered a cassette weight for Sram that was 20 grams heavier than it should have been. Originally I had typed 2145.6 for the complete weight, then I had entered, 2135.6 on another occasion and the actual is 2125.6.
I've seen variation in reported weights from others as well. I know someone that is 24 grams lighter with their chain and bottom bracket, although their crank is 15 grams heavier. So if I were in the marketing department and I picked the lightest pieces, I could get 2099 grams. If when comparing to SR I chose the steel spindle and heavier SR brakes the weight of that group would go up to 2213. A difference of 114 grams. Of course you have to remember when a marketing person is comparing groups they aren't going to go out of their way to create a fair comparison, they are going to find the mix that favors them the most.
