    Is (insert noun here) in decline?

    The other 2 threads say Sram and Campy are not in decline. Does that mean Shimano is in decline?

    SRAM, Shimano, and Campy are all in decline because of nut hugging jean wearing hipsters on cheap fixies.

    Microshift mother**ckers!

    Thats the only way. Nothing but the best. End of story!
    Oh the usual...some carbon fiber, some deep wheels, some electronic shifting, and not enough money.

    false, black holes, even Uranus, lose energy in the form of diarrhetic jets of energy and radiation. the black hole will eventually run out of things to suck, but yet this energy loss will continue. this leads to an eventual "evaporation" of the black hole. by this time, the universe will be at maximum entropy, basically a giant space of ****.

    Around here, Campy and Sram shares are on the rise while Shimano has declined.

    I don't expect Shimano to decline much when SRAM and Campy mostly cater to the mid and upper end only while Shimano also offers lower end offerings that I'm sure are a popular choice on quality entry level bikes.

    Don't SRAM make the gripshifts that are found on every Department store mtb? They don't have a road group that competes directly with Claris, but you see their mtb stuff on hybrids all the time.

    I would wonder if those numbers are for the whole company and not the bike division by itself.

    Shimano is forgetful at times, but doesn't need a walker and hasn't been diagnosed with Alzheimers or even Somtimers. So no, Shimano is not clinically in decline.

    Are Decline Threads in Decline?

    I've seen a lot of threads asking if various things are in decline lately. Are these threads in the decline? I certainly hope so!
