I’ve pretty much decided on going with di2 over eps as I wasn’t all that impressed with the super record eps kit I test rode, though I absolutely love my mech Sr.

Were there any meaningful changes between 9070 and the newer 9150 ? I only run a 28t max in the rear, caliper brakes etc.. so no consideration given for larger rear cogs or disc lever shape etc...

I kind of prefer the finish of the 9070, but would I be stupid to get the previous gen ????

Thanks !

I had a bike with 9070 and this year I started riding another bike with 9150. The 9150 bike has a 8050 RD because I run a 11x34 cassette. Both groups run flawlessly and honestly I can’t tell any difference in shifting. The 9070 bike has Sram Red cassette and the 9150 bike has a Shimano cassette. If you go with 9070 you can save a lot of money. There are still some 9070 new parts up for sale. I can’t tell the difference in brakes either. Good luck on your purchase.

The ergonomics on the 9150 are superior. Moreover, the Shadow-style RD is superb. I own two 9150 bikes, and a 9070. Its not even a choice at this point, 9150 or GTFO.

Own both, 9070 is a bit quieter and my 9100 crankset has a clicking problem and is for warranty ar shimano.

Good deals on 9070, and you won’t be disappointed. If money’s not a concern though, the shadow derauiler and hoods on 9150 are nicer.

if you are looking for the second hand one the 9070 is a good choice. There are no big differ but the design

You have no idea what you are talking about, the rear derailleur is massively different for a start...oh yeah sorry, you're probably trying to bump up your post count with useless comments....carry on

I've got both 9150 and 9070.

In my opinion there is not much difference when you are actually pedalling. It feels the same. I think you would be happy with either when you got them.

Is there really a need to be like this?

I was polite, there's a sorry in there...Just seems to be in influx as useless post recently, and I'm aware I'm adding to those as well, although I don't need to add to my own post count if you bothered to look at my profile, it's just an unfortunate side affect Image

As I see it, if you don't care about:
  • the rear mech with the long cage+clutch
  • improved ergonomics of the hydraulic+di2 shifters (not applicable to rim brakes)
  • the extra bling factor of having the latest kit (though I think the black/chrome finish of 9000 looks better than the all gloss black of the newer series)
then I'm not sure why you would want to go 9150. You can get 9070 for a hell of a bargain right now second hand--even the parted out/take off unused stuff resells for the same. You can get the shifters/RD/FD for ~550USD these days.

I wouldn't worry too much about which RD and FD you go with - both work very well and will do fine with 28T max cassettes. What I would do is to be sure you get the 9150 STI. The ergomomics of the new 9100 gen shifters are a lot better than the 9070 iteration, imo.
