Best way to go Dura Ace from Ultegra(6 posts)

Best way to go Dura Ace from UltegraRob West

My bike is currently kitted out with Ultegra and I would like to gradually transfer to the new 10 speed Dura Ace (not being rich enough to do it all at once). What is the best way to go about this?

Shifters, cassette and chain first.

Maybe add the rear derailleur to the list, but the rest? For the billion dollars you're going to spend, you're not getting too much that Ultegra doesn't do too.

Personally, I'm going to wait for the "early adaptors" to get theirs so Shimano can start dropping prices...

I figure Campy 10v Ergo brifters and rear derailleur and Shimano everything else is what I'm going to end up running.

given that campy and shimano 10 cog spacing is about .2mm different,it may or may not work as well as you would like. Campy/shimano 9 with that much difference usually works ok,But don't think I have seen actual reports from anyone mixing the 10 speed stuff that way.

What are your motives for upgrading? If you want the 10speeds; then cassette, shifters, and rear mech. Personally, I'm the most stoked about those cranks so that's what I'd grab first.

Yeah, it is going 10 speed that is the key factor for me, although I agree that the chainset looks good. I'll probably try and wait till it comes down in price a bit.
