Anyone purchase or demo this new groupset yet? I checked the weights of all the components, and EVERYTHING is a little bit lighter. I can't speak for performance, but the stuff weighs much much less than the '04 dura ace. For instance, the shifter/brake lever for Dura Ace weighs 419 grams, and the campagnolo counterpart weights a mere 324 grams! These are weights claimed by their respective manufacturers, I'm certain actual weight will vary by +/- 3% when actually shipped. There is no way I'm getting the whole new recrod group. Tooo expensive, but I will be picking up a front derailleur (its just TOO hot) and also the new 259 gram chain. Anyhow, I'd love to hear reviews on the new stuff. Have any magazines reviewed the new components yet?

04 Record has a lighter shift action than previous years, and can be distingished from previous years by the "10 Ultra" on the right shifter instead of the "10 speed"
