    I interested in purchasing a Mirrycle Road Mirror and I'm sure it will fit (since my Specialized Roubaix Expert Double is from 2006). But it got me wondering....how do I tell WHICH model of Shimano...

    Most of my training rides are fairly sheltered, so I really don't care about wind so much as high temperatures and the possibility of thunderstorms. And the only century I ride is the annual event...
