2013 Force all the way! Some of Red's technology like the Wi-Fli rear cassette (which will allow gearing that helps out climbing for days) and derrailleur, the new crankset chainrings which have improved durability and stiffness, and Zero Loss in the levers so the shifting is even quicker than previous years'.
Shimano = More durable and smoother shifting since they're made outta full aluminum.
Sram = Lighter and quicker shifting (incorporates a lot of carbon in the groupset)

Yeah dura ace isn't good enough, you need a super record eps group.

No dude, Dura-Ace is around $3,000. But if you want Dura-Ace Di2, that is around $4,500. Di2 is defiantly better than EPS. But that's if you have the money to purchase electronic shifiting! lol.

@Unclip, i dont think ill fork out that much, since im going to ride this bike streets of california, pure flat lands.

since there's chances the components get road rash, the $3000 isnt practical.

Unclip says:

well, I live in California and there are hills everywhere. And honestly, if you can afford it, I would totally recommend Dura-Ace. It will never let you down. and the likely hood of you crashing or getting hit by a car and destroying you bike is pretty unlikely. Plus it's California and most drivers will fork out the money to pay for a new bike! In my experiences. :]

EPS is way cooler than Di2. Also, Ultegra is the best bang for your buck, so you should consider that.

dura ace is completely unnecessary. Sure, if we all had the money, wed buy it. but even most who have the money dont neet it. Get a rival group with force cranks. good, cheap, light. hills vs flats dont really matter when selecting a group, just take into consideration your gear ratios. if youll be doing strictly road riding/racing than it really depends on your style of riding and strength. standard vs compact gearing. if youre new to fast style riding than a compact will be perfectly suitable. but you say you wont be riding on any hills so standard gearing wouldnt be outrageous. youll also learn to love a good all around gearing in back. 11-26 or 12-28. something like that with a standard derailliur. if you want more range than sram wifli can get you something like an 11-32, but its not really necessary unless youre riding a lot of hills or carrying gear (which im assuming you wont be doing)

also, ultegra is not the best bang for the buck. sram force probably is. its lighter than dura ace and cheaper than ultegra. just needs a little bit more maintenance

SRAM may be cheaper, but it sucks balls. Ultegra is the best for training/racing.
