Finally, someone wins one against Shimano. See the link below. Nice to see the small guy win one so that we continue to have some choice in the marketplace. Shimano has bought up almost all the road bike market as well as the MTB market. How many new bikes do you see at your LBS that have anything but Shimano. Almost none. They are becoming very exclusionary in their marketing practices. The Microsoft of bicycle parts.
I will be chaning my MTB over to SRAM once they have a year under their belts to work out any bugs.
And for the road, Campy Rules!!!
