First/only groupset upgrade on my bike since 2005 and 5,000+ miles per year (exluding chains). The old 10sp Centaur was shot. The new group set is smooth - crisp gear changes up and down with lighter, shorter touch. The 12 speed cassette makes it possible to spend a whole ride in the large or small ring if terrain changes aren't too drastic (In south Florida, they are not). With some hillier rides planned I am sure the wide range will come in handy. The brakes also stop well. Overall I think for it's level it is a very competent group set that performs at least as well as the ultegra sets I have had the chance to effectively demo. I have notched it one point because the price is still on the high side. Until I get another 12+ years it will be difficult to say whether the higher price will be worth it but it has met my expectations so far.
