Garmin-Cervélo switches to Shimano

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

My bad... in my defense I did look to see if it was posted but the other thread didn't have a descriptive enough title.

Hey, it's impossible to keep track of everything posted here.
Jump in the other thread. Some nice mudslinging is happening there in the best BF tradition.

It is Dura-Ace Di2 they are moving to. I tell ya, Dura-Ace Di2 is great stuff, no matter how you feel about Shimano.

And just imagine the possibilities with subsequent iterations..........

Yours does have the clearer and superior title, but the other one was first.

Closing this one, here's the link to the other: https://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...et-up-SRAM-FDs
