    Hi all,
    Checking for a friend who's getting a new bike what are the differences between the DA9000 (mechanical) and the Ultegra

    Weight, stiffness and price.

    will be happy to get a link to a comparison

    Thanks!

    Weight difference and stiffness will be marginal. Bearings and shifting will be better on the DA9000. The price difference is astronomical! Ultegra about $1250 and DA about $2700.

    A lot of non Pro tour riders use Ultegra with great success. Or buy old technology. I just picked up a full 2013 SRAM Red 10 groupset for under $1,000. Never used and a take off from a new bike. I can use the extra $1700 for a new wheelset, saddle and carbon bars!
