|I have the opportunity to get a three year old dura ace group for around the same price that a new ultegra group would cost me (no, not the retail price). The group is around three years old and has relatively low mileage. Which do you think I will be better off going with?

|I have the newest version of Ultegra, and it is very good. I like it better than the previous version I had before. The annoying shifter-cap-shake is cured, since now the cap is screwed on. The only thing that Dura Ace has (but I don't know if the older model has it) is the front shifter has the ability to move the front derailleur anywhere within its range, not just a 1/2 click trim. Also, the older Dura Ace hollow axle splined BB had lousy seals before cartridge bearings were used.
