Shimano’s second tier Ultegra groupset is on a 50% discount at Chain Reaction Cycles. Ultegra is brilliant because it’s so similar to the top tier Dura-Ace offering that you get nearly all of the benefits (it weighs marginally more) without the Dura-Ace price tag.
This particular model is the mechanical and rim brake version and shifting is superb, especially thanks to the Shadow rear mech technology now used and the direct mount rim brakes are spectacular in the wet or dry.
