Shimano Dura-Ace EX - In Demand ?
Just wondering if there's much of a market for vintage Shimano EX. I have most of a group, used, that I don't really have a use for.

Luke warm market. Dura ace really didn't come into its own until 7400. Keep your expectations low.

Depending on price, I would consider it as a buyer.

Agree with KAS. Interest pretty much peaked when it became known that Armstrong used the brakes in the 2004 tour. More minuses than pluses with this group. I would sell the calipers on their own.

I believe the above comment is incorrect - LA used AX, not EX. There isn't much interest in AX, and there's less in EX. There is also more EX out there. It's a pretty pedestrian group - a Japanese campy clone that sold on price, not its merits. AX is at least interesting insofar as its different.

Yep - Aaron is right - thanks.

Yup, DA didn't really gain momentum to be what it is today until 7400- the slant parallelogram changed a whole lot.
