Shimano's New Cyclocross Components: CX70's and CX50's
bikerumor.com has the scoop on shimano's new CX grouppos. A double crankset or two here, a front derailleur or four there. they look pretty darn good and all, but really what piqued my interest are these CX70 cantis. the pr says that these are CX specific, but i'll be damned if these things wouldn't work great as a front pair on a touring bike...
can't wait to see these in the real world! hopefully these 105 and ultergra level grouppos sell well enough to warrant a CX90 line!
