It seems the three options are the Bontrager Speed Stop, Dura Ace direct mount, and EE direct mount. Anyone out there with comments (esp. comparisons in the case of a switch from one to another) or confirmed weights?

Dura ace front brakes 157gm rear brakes 137gm. Stops well, never felt like it could be better. They are much cheaper now then when they first came out, imo get them if you want value, the EEs if you want bling. Sorry I don't have experience with the others.

Also noticed the Ultegra option, which I imagine, per usual, performs similar to the DA but weighs more and costs less...

More than bling on the EE's -- that's a substantial weight savings.

Dura-Ace are around $225 for the pair. EE would be $630 from Fairwheel. That's $400 to save close to 100 grams -- a relative bargain compared to what you're paying to save weight on that frame, assuming you're getting the top-end one, the other ones relatively heavy.
