no, if it was below 700g it would be called a zero 6! so at 796g mine is 0.79 kg

Maybe it's 'cause I'm old, maybe it's 'cause I grew up on steel with sew-ups, or maybe it's becasue my first LBS was owned by an Italian guy who looked just like Eddy Merckx, but I'd go Campy in a heartbeat. No hestitation.

Especially on a frame who's company name translates roughly into "Long live Italy, liberated and redeemed"

Italian bike, Italian groupset. I have seen Wilier Zero 7's with SR on them and they just look so natural and fantastic. There is also a slight artisan quality in Campagnolo's top end offering that cannot be surpassed.

And the question of electronic or mechanical? I don't think you can go wrong with either, but my preference would be the mechanical. But in saying that the EPS looks so good that it might even coax me to believe in the merits of electronic gearing. If you live anywhere near Australia, there is a fantastic magazine called Ride cycling review (issue #57) that recently has done a review on a Wilier Zero 7 wih SR EPS which is worth a look if you can get your hands on a copy. This bike weighed in at 6657g but that was with a set of fairly hefty Fulcrum Red Wind XLR's that hit the scales at 1640g so a set of nice light wheels and you could have a bike shooting around the six kg mark.

In this, I haven't mentioned SRAM Red. I am also a big sucker for Red and with the recent changes I have fallen in love with it even more. I think if you chose this, you could not possibly go wrong as it is exceptionally light, fantastic aesthetically and really smooth. However, I think for a Wilier, you need to go for Campagnolo.

I think more than the frame your riding style should dictate your groupset. If you like to shift from the drops, especially while sprinting I think campy is out unless you have giant hands. If you ride on the hoods the whole time, get campy it is much prettier than SRAM. I have sram on both bikes by the way.

I agree as I am a bit of a sprinter and currently ride Shimano, I would love the convenience of being able to be anywhere in the drops and still be able to flick it to a smaller cog. And also the short throw is ideal as you have to sometimes have to stretch you wrist at extroadinairy angles with Shimano whereas with SRAM there is the convenience of its 1:1 cable pull ratio.
