Read in velo news that Campy is adding an 11th gear to Record and Chrous in the 2009 line up, imagine - more cogs in the back than I had combinations on my first road bike back in the early 70s.
I was considering a new group for the Simoncini but now I think I'll wait since this '09 group is supposed to be the same price as the old group. Another side effect might be some great sales on '08 10 cog drive trains. I guess Shimano will follow along with SRAM.
I use to think that 10 speeds was a joke but a few year back when I dialed in cadence training I really appreciated the tight steps - now that I am dialing in heart rate training on top of it, it just makes total sense.
