I've used 105 5600 (built up a bike for my brother), Ultegra 6600/6700, and Dura Ace, as well as my SRAM Red. I honestly like the feel of the Shimano hoods better, as well as the ability to brake and shift down simultaneously. SRAM DT does have it's merits as well. The hood design is a bit narrow for my liking though.

I didn't think I alluded to any changes? Now that you mention that, however, longer stem and different wheelset.

Weird, I thought I saw that in the profile somewhere.

Different wheelset huh? I'd gladly take your Cosmic Carbones off your hands. ; )
