    Need to choose betw an ARGON 18 Platinum with Ultegra SL or COLNAGO CLX w Record 10

    Both (2008 models) are now exactly the same price tho' I think the Campy loadout is better. Argon equipped with Fulcrum Racing 1 wheels while Colnago comes with Tunes.

    Pls advise as to which is a better bet? Need to decide really soon! Thanks.

    Ride them first and use fit and feel to choose. Record is a lighter/nicer group though.

    Agreed, ride them first. The shifting action and feel is different on both as you know (Shim vs Campy that is).

    Providing that both fit you as well... I'd go Colnago/Campy. You can't wrong. If you decide to sell it, it will always hold it's value.

    Thanks guys! This seems to gel with my gut feel. The Colnago seems to appeal more to me but mainly cos of the ride and the campys. The Argon sorta appealed more in the aesthetics/looks dept but somehow it seemed that acceleration on the Argon was a tad pacier! ;)

    ride them both first but to me its a no brainer. colnago and campy is what dreams are made of for alot of cyclists. I have a full ultegra group and have been saving for/lusting over campy for a long time

    Ultegra vs Record? Is that even a question worth thinking about?

    I mean cripes man... I can't believe what I just read.
