New Stuff From Shimano

Posted: April 14, 2011 in 2011, New Products

Here’s a couple of pictures of the new XTR rear mech and the new XT group set for 2012.

There is also a report on t he XT stuff on Bike Radar

As usual, more subliminal inducements for us to part with our cash. On the whole, my old kit is lasting really well. Rear mechs keep shifting up and down a 9 speed cassette without any grief, despite looking like a ratty heap of junk out of a parts bin and the front mechs hardly get any use at all. I won’t be an early adopter of 2 x 10 as i can’t see the point. Surely if you want to ditch the granny gear (which weighs next to nothing anyway) you can just adjust your old kit anyway. I’ll wait until my old stuff dies of old age. Mark my words, 3 x n will come back one day as the ‘next best thing’.
