Shimano’s new carbon Dura ace chainset looks like the next piece of kit for my bike . Release date is spring 2008 but no price as yet . It weighs 709 grams and is 10 % stiffer than the current alloy version .
It looks as though this will be a good winter for those on the road to be venturing off road . Shimano have just launched a new version of their XT groupset which is now 25 years old . The new version looks cool but the old one really looks like a museam piece now .
