The 'no pedals included' brigade will freak when they see that this doesn't even come with a bike !!
Jesus! You could buy a Citroen Saxo, insure it and fill the tank and still have change for this price

The equivalent of a supercar - if you can afford it
Will this fit my Raleigh Chopper?
Not for me, as I’m happy with my couple of years old pushbike that I paid this amount for, but interested, are pros using these electronic systems, or are they just serious enthusiast kit?
DON'T LOOK AT IT

If I could afford this I doubt I would be on hukd looking for bike bits
Will this fit on my 2006 Specialized Globe ladies shopping bike? I need to make a fast getaway from Sainsbury's.
I thought serious road bikes had disk brakes these days?
Will this fit a Boris bike ?
cold, the cranks do not use cotter pins!

One might have a slightly older frame which is not disc compatible. Maybe this is one reason why this set is discounted.
It will fit my Apollo jewel. Finally I can be faster.
Bargain my 1997 bike would look a beast with theses add-ons
Where's the rest of it?

What - serious road bikes have vintage campag group sets
Will there still be room to peg playing cards onto the rear frame, with all that junk in the way?

You'd have a lot of change left over too!

I guess it's all about the weight with this stuff..?

I imagine that back in the day braking tech weighs less than a disc and caliper
I'd expect it to come with a year's supply of performance enhancing pills too at this price.

This is practically worthless without them......

For road biking most riders are using electric shifting and this particular groupset is one of the most popular although Dura-Ace even my Shimano's own admission is intended for professional use, Ultegra Di2 is intended for consumers as it's a good bit cheaper and almost as good.

It's a lot of money but the shifting is fantastic as it's incredibly quick and reliable in all conditions and unlike a mechanical groupset you can just hold the shift lever down and move up and down through the entire cassette in one go. It's also hugely configurable which is of use to the pros, there was a rider on the Paris Roubaix who had the standard STI shifters, sprint shifters on both sides (basically just a button) and a hill climb shifter on the main bars as well. It was set up so if he pressed either of the STI shifters or the sprint button on the left side, the rear cassette would go up and if he pressed any of the three shifters on the right it would shift down the cassette with the hill climb shifter being used to move to the front derailleur.
Would this be a good upgrade for my chopper?

In fairness, unless you're a professional cyclist competing in racing events, this is ridiculous money to spend for a group set. You're far better off going for 105 or Ultegra. For 99.9% of cyclists this is literally throwing money away to save 100 grams off the weight of your bike. Not voting cold, I'm just pointing out the facts
I hope this comes with batteries...

True, but it still won't go as fast as someone using this!
Who needs this, the only thing that makes a bike better is adding one of these 10p bad boys....

I dare say Shimano will be upgrading the 9100 series to 12 speed ....to compete with SRAM.....no doubt it'll be very expensive so maybe wait for its introduction and a 9100 price drop.

Agreed, I have a 105 group set on my bike and it was fine getting me around an Ironman, if I had a spare £2K I'd buy new wheels before this.

Absolutely. Light weight carbon wheels make a huge difference. You'd barely notice the difference between 105 and Dura-Ace, if at all. I run Ultegra R8000 on my bike, and wouldn't dream of upgrading to Dura-ace
Decent price on a great groupset, but this will never look as bling as the previous 9000 series Dura-Ace silver finish (upgraded my Ultegra 6800 to 9000 mechanical for about £400 total on eBay earlier this year). Do I go any faster? No, but that's not always what it's about!37976943-C3pCu.jpg

Curious question from a n00b here, but why the focus on 'upgrading' to 12 speed? What's the benefit?

Smaller steps between gears, instead of big jumps. Resulting in smoother gear changes.
Similar to a car having a a bottom and a top gear, some cars have 3 or 4 gears in between and other more performance based cars have greater numbers between bottom and top gears.

Also, disc brakes are heavier.

Very little but like 10 to 11 speed it is all about cyclists wanting the latest version...mind in the process there are component improvements which can improve shifting...which improve the cycling enjoyment.....at the end of the day it's down to how serious you are about cycling and what you can afford....cycling can be very expensive.
This is like buying a Bentley for the commute. If you have s**t loads of money go for it but way cheaper options will do for everyone. Unless you are running TdF next month
