    Record 10 Groupset or Chorus 11 Groupset?

    To Campy gurus, perhaps you can help me sort this out. There a lot of information in this forums but it is either difficult to get a straight answer or there is too much information to sort out.

    If I can get both of the following at the same price, which one will you choose?

    1. Record 10 groupset with titanium pieces very similar to this photo but with ultra drive:

    2. Chorus 11 (Model 2012) groupset

    TIA

    I would absolutely get the chorus. Parts, like chains and cassettes, are through the roof for 10 speed stuff. The ergo shifters are a better shape on the 11 speed as well. Plus, there is really not much difference between 2012 chorus and 2012 record 11 speed.

    Chorus 11-spd definitely. Unless there are some other mitigating circumstances, I would tend to prefer current technology. Also, having an 11-spd setup now eases the upgrade costs if you want to go EPS later. You won't have to buy a crank, brakes, cassette and chain along with the electronic hardware.

    Chorus 11 - without a doubt. The shift feel is much improved. The shifter ergonomics is much, much improved. It is a better feeling group.

    chorus 11 (i switched from Record10 to chorus11, glad i did.) better braking, better lever/hood shape, flawless shifting (same as record was).

    (not that record10 was bad in any way...)
    enjoy it.

    It's unanimous. Chorus 11 it is! Got to place my order now.

    Very good inputs from everyone.
