Campy Veloce or Shimano 105 or Shimano Ultegra? New BikerRohair

I am a new road biker and would like suggestions on which group to get. Veloce and 105 are within my budget, Ultegra is a little above.

is worth the little extra over Veloce. You get 10 speeds, and won't be wanting to upgrade as soon. Shop around. Texas Cyclesport advertises pretty low prices on Campy. Prices are a lower at sdeals.com or totalcycling.com (both overseas dealers, but reliable).

Ultegra is only $100 more than 105. If you go Shimano, get the Ultegra.

A common mistake is to pinch pennies on the initial purchase, and end up spending more on upgrades later.
