    Is something wrong with bikeforums.net or this is just a blank post?

    Yeah... just a blank post.

    But as far as the 2007 XTR, I'm really happy with what I'm hearing in the shifter department. I also like the improvements they're doing with the brakes too although I'm probably still going to bypass Shimano brakes for various other reasons. The decision to go with carbon chainrings seems kind of silly though but whatever... I've never been all that interested in Shimano cranks anyways. Same goes for their pedals.

    Very true. But I think these take it to a new level.

    Indeed. Is it supposed to open up your favourite bottle of pinot noir?



    Perhaps they are trying to market against Campagnolo's offerring...

    Yep... about the same price as a single XTR hydro DCL.
