2008 Shimano Electronica
Son of a..... They jumped right past Campagnolo, it looks like, and now it's gonna be a race as to who can release first.
These are some "spy" pics that are now all over the web showing an electronic D/A 10 group. Very nice. I like the LCD screen in the top of the levers. What would really kick ass is a 1.5x3" flat screen Flite console to mount infront of the stem. Like a flatscreen for your bike.
Now we just have to ask ourselves how much we will see this this spring and what Campy is gonna do to get there 8 million dollar investment out of the stable and into our hands.... Campy's big thing, so they say, has not been getting it to perform, it's been performing very well, allegedly, but as they put it, now they have to, "Make it beautiful."
I think the last thing Campy needs, with FSA allegedly working on a full group and SRAM about ot release is for them to be caught with an electronic group still in development while the HUGE BLUE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM, known as Shimano, is set to sell their's!
I'm gonna switch topics for a second here to point out that The Temp's little boy-toy, Floyd, did, impressively throw down today to take the lead at P-N. Also, Bettini took the opener of Terrino-Adriatico, but we should notice that once again, Zabel was second. I do not know if we should be impressed with his consistency or saddened by his eternal 2nd placings. I swear, if that guy gets NO wins this season I'm gonna be REALLY mad.
Someone was saying that with being oon the same team as Ale-Jet, he needs to strike out on Break-aways to get in on the early moves and hope they stick. Who in their right mind is gonna risk Zabel getting in an early move?
Alright, more later....
