    hello, i have just brought my self a beautiful cervelo R3 frame set, and im now thinking about what group set to go for so was hoping for some help, i currently have ultegra on my old bike which i have been happy with, but when i see photos of the r3 alot of them have spram which i no nothing about, has any one had spram and how do the compare i think its the spram rival.
     
  2. 'Spram'..?

    Much of the choice will be down to budget, or which type of shift function you may prefer and the ergonomics of the hoods - other than that, the groups both do an identical job.

    I'm about to buy a set of RS80 C24's (dura-ace rims, ultegra hubs). In stock at planet-x for £299. Seems amazing value to me!

    Go electronic UI2 if you don't have the DA budget.

    That explains the incredibly cheap price and the Japanese writing on the box :laugh:

    I don't like SPAM - sorry I meant SRAM. Personal thing about the double tap. I much prefer Shimano. You would need to try a bike fitted with SRAM before investing in a SRAM groupset.
