well - nav - you clearly didnt do a research on 07 Shimano shifter before you replied my post, you see the dual release on the shimano shifter pic above? Thats the huge difference between 06 and 07 shifter, dual release means you can use your thumb or your index to shift which is means the shifter could be a push-pull type or a push-push type(SRAM style) by the way, 07 Shimano Shifter can ReLeAsE two cogs at once instead of the traditional 1 cog release, of coarse you still can release 1 cog.

I just 'upgraded' to the mach 3 (the 8 speed group of shavers) so I have a way to go. I guess.

I think the newest Gillette is five blades

I'm not going to go back to Shimano so I don't think this effects me, unless, like Mael said, SRAM decides to make the same mistakes as Shimano. I absolutely love my X.9 derailleur and X.0 trigger, it's amazing

Judging by the number of posts here where people say "I was in 2 in the front and 3 in the back," I would say yes, unfortunately.

Me too. I recently went to the new Saint rear shifter and I like it a lot - no indicator, stubbier paddles, short, quick throws, and it's designed to be mounted outboard of the brake lever.

I like my X.0 trigger, because of the adjustabilty, the versatility, the ease of use and maintenance, and it's awesome looking to boot.

ok well technically that Gillette Fusion has 6 blades so it's even one up from five, it has a single "detailing" blade

Okay, we get it. You SRAM shills are incorrigible.

Actually you don't even get another gear, just closer ratios, so its a total waste.

I don't know man, my Juicy 5's are super smooth at the lever. From what I've read...set up and maintenance is so much easier too.

I think it might depend. I'm told that 2007 bikes will start hitting the stores in July. Now of course that's no guarantee that those bikes will be the ones with 2007 components. They might delay shipping of those particular bikes or re-spec them with older stock. However, I'm sure that would hurt sales for those following the news.
