Personally,
I would wait a bit and not buy the new 10 speed dura-ace right away. Once this stuff (gruppo) goes into full production problems are inevitable and will show up. If you are that hot to get it, then do so, or better yet you may get a nine speed and then upgrade to the 10. Some really sweet deals at the LBS are bound to crop up with the 10 speed displacing the nice speed.
Another thought abut the 10 speed for shimano, there are not going to be any new groupings in rear cassettes. the same 11-23 or 12-25 will still be there. Shimano has said they are just going to make the gears closer together.
I wonder if they are going to continue selling the .............MR_GRUMPY

I just bought a FSA crank with ISIS BB instead of DA crank and BB along with a DA group. I'm not going to sit there and look sheepish every time Shimano changes their proprietary components.

Long live free standards

Screw corporate greed

Ultegra will be around until 2005.....MR_GRUMPY

and 105 until 2006, that is, if they decide to change the BB for those groups.

The dura-Ace crank has it's own axle. Yhe bottom bracket is just bearings essentially.
