Shimano release 11 speed 105


I don’t often post on this sort of stuff as the big boys swallow this up, so there is little point, or a need to as it gets plenty of coverage. But I genuinely think this is a good thing from Shimano, they always do the trickle down on group sets but this is probably the best trickle down in the components manufacturers history. Taking the look and feel of the superb 11 speed group sets above and creating an aesthetic upper entry level group set is good for consumers (and Shimano). As much a I would like to buy Dura Ace etc, I would rather buy this and spend the left over on food or equally important like rent! Full details here.

    Do you have a shot of the non-drive side crank?

      Not seen one, just these PR shots. I’m sure more will emerge as the release date looms closer.
