How much of the bicycle market use 9speed components?
Does anyone see Shimano pushing 10speed for most groupsets anytime soon?
With bicycling growing in popularity every year, and more so for the years to come, and considering there'll be more regular daily riders grinding out their drive train more frequently... Does anyone see it possible going back to 7speed and 8speed components for possible advantages with stronger and more durable parts (if they get designed that way)?
Does anyone find that shooting up to 11 speed components simply just makes things lighter, thinner and more complex... but hinders overall durability?
