Shimano 2007 Dealer Tour

Thanks to Mark V and his connections, I was able to stop into the Shimano 2007 Dealer Tour held in Bellevue, WA yesterday. Lots of new stuff targeted to the “shop crowd” - so mostly race parts for both mtn and road bikes. Some cool new stuff coming out - mostly in their pre-built wheels offerings. The stuff I wanted to see the most - they didn’t have. The Alfine group is so compelling - I really wanted to see a bike built up with it and give it a ride, but no luck. I did get some good print and DVD promotional material on it which will keep me drooling for a while.

Cranks.JPG The trickle-down continues: FC-R600 cranks look like DuraAce, but cost less than 105

Tiagra.JPG The new Tiagra stuff shown here is in fact 9sp. To get the 10sp trickle-down for less, check out the ST-R700 shifters






Wheels.jpg LOTS of wheels on display - the new Dura Ace tubeless road wheels, some nice carbon rims, and more Ultegra, 105, Dura Ace, XTR, and XT
