I saw the ultegra 6510 STI levers on supergo for $140. has anyone used them? I know the old ones were complete, total and utter crap. are these better, or are they going to break down after 50 miles?

Well - I liked them for the most part. Unfortunately though, my left (front) shifter crapped out after 13 months of use. Granted, I'm hard on equipment so that may have something to do with it. I had just over 7000 miles on them (that includes 20 races).

The infamous rattle wasn't completely solved with the 2001 models but it was better.

All in all, $140 is a good price for them. I would have no problem going with the Ultegras again but could not resist the siren song of Dura Ace.
