New SRAM stuff

Anybody have an idea when the new SRAM stuff like the X.0 trigger shifters and the updated X.0 rear mech will be available? I heard May from some sources but it didnt materialize and i also heard June and im just wondering if anyone has any idea.

The MtBers crossing over and tourers will also be pleased to know that they have plans to add a hydrolic brake master piston version of the lever in 08 or 09.

I have no further details at this stage, but I suspect that we my see it appearing on some CSC bikes next year.
Bit off topic but I can see a few people, whether takin the piss or not, running 10sp on their dh bikes soon haha

Pffft you can do it now if you have a little imagination.

The only real issue is that the 10 sp chain is so damn thin

They are just becoming available. Limited quantities for now. There was such a high demand by the manufacturers that VERY few have been released to the public. I ordered mine in mid July and the rear der. is in, and the shifters are due in on Friday. Good luck finding them.

I'm thinking about a new thread... SRAM OCP's? It might start a civil war with the MTBing community, but I must let people know my lust for SRAM. Will ya post?
