    Shimano unveiled its new high end Dura-Ace 9100 mechanical and Dura-Ace Di2 groupsets. More info on this announcement on the dedicated site here.

    What groupset are you using on your bikes?

    Officially Triple, but I also have a 105 at the back

    I have full Shimano 105 on my road bike and a full XT on my trekking bike.

    Cyclo-Gravel-Road bike (All City MMD): Shimano 105 10spd shifters/rear derailleur, Shimano CX ft. Hayes road disks, FSA crank 46/36
    Classic Road (Waterford Paramount): Full ~1990 Shimano 600 Ultegra 8spd w/indexed downtube shifters
    Mtn Bike (Surly Krampus): Shimano SLX 1x10 w/ Wide/Narrow chainring(no chainguide required) Avid BB7 mechanical disc brakes
    Touring Bike(Surly LHT): Shimano 9spd (XT, 105 mix) w/ friction bar-end shifters, Sugino triple crank, Shimano CX cantilever brakes.

    Though I know it saves a little money, I hate how most off-the-shelf bikes use so many mixed groups. When my chainrings wear out on my All City, I'm going to pony-up for a 105 crank. Plus, the lower CX gears are not really necessary for me since I just ride it on roads and light trails.

    My winter/hack bike has a 105/old ultegra mix plus a few hand me down bits from old bikes. 105 is a real sweetspot IMO. Inexpensive enough that you don't have to remortgage your house to replace stuff. Bombproof and performs almost as good as the top end kit. I never fail to be impressed by it.

    My everyday ride has Ultegra with an old FSA carbon crankset

    My best bike is DA9000 throughout. There's no denying the incredible performance of shimano's top end kit but as the years go by i think the delta between DA/Ultegra/105 is getting smaller so it's a lot of cash for what is an increasingly marginal gain - especially as i get older and slower :p.

    But that's the entire nature of the cycling industry I guess :)
