Shimano DuraAce 7900 discussion


Recommended Posts

Carbon crank was just a publicity stunt to make the new 7900 a bit more lusted after and eventually went out as a bad idea or thats what i thought

Shimano  delayed the production of Carbon Cranks as the new 7900 range was introduced and Shimano were not happy with Tests done and it would have been pointless to produce an old design 7800 looking Carbon Crank.Shimano use Cold Forging and Hollow Tec II to produce their Cranks and find it to be lighter,stiffer  than Carbon however

with their R&D department working 24/7 i am sure we will be seeing new

photo-samples soon. 

The DI2 we received samples of last week and had them on Super Cycling.

The prices are extremely high and we will only have stocks mid April 09.The Shifting performance is unbeleivable and we will have a Test Bike by the end of next week ready to be tested.
