Shimano Airlines.


I am sooooooooooooo glad this did not catch on. For those that don't know it is a compressed air derailer/ shifter system. (instead of cable actuated pulls)


Remember kids. Do not try and re-invent the wheel. Unless you work for Nicolai, in which case you will not only re invent it, you will put a lot of holes in it and it will be very expensive.

Do they not need cables or something? What's so great about them? They're just air?

there is no cable stetch and they sound like the blowoff valve on a 1200 horse pwer supra. and apperntly its impossible to miss a shift tup Pimp

1600 for no cable stretch, hmm sounds like a good trade off. regardless of the extra weight added.

compressed air in a bottle that fit a cage. no cables = no stucktion in mud or whatnot.

Too bad you needed a location for the canister.

ON the flip, it could have the lines zip tied right tighgt to the frame with no decrease in performance. and it got something like 300+ shifts per charge... no one shifts 300 times in a race, which is all it wasa developed for.
