Ok,rumor control time. While BS'ing with one of the guys at an LBS,he said that starting this fall Shimano was going to increase prices by 20% throughout it's entire line. He also said that because of this,Specialized was going with all SRAM on their bikes for '06.
The guy seemed serious. I did a quick search here on the forums,and didn't come up with anything,then checked Shimano's webpage,nothing there either. Can anyone confirm this? This sounds like crazy,but who knows.
