First Look: Shimano's New XTR is More Than Just 12-Speed
@jeremiahwas: Reminds me of when SRAM had the "new" shift action with just thumbs, where Shimano required thumb away, index towards to shift. People LOVED the thumb only action from SRAM, so Shimano just made the next generation shift either way. I still vastly prefer Shimano, but yeah, not as much on the innovation side, but boy do they do a good job at honing something and making it better.

I have a 2013 Lynskey Stratus, Medium, with two sets of wheels and two forks for sale. One set is the first version of HED's Big Deal carbon rims with purple Salsa hubs, with a set of 45 NRTH Husker Du's 4" wide, and the other is the stock wheelset, I believe Surly hubs laced to Surly Rolling Darryl rims, with a Nate and Big Fat Larry. The HED set is a great summer wheelset with the Husker Du's, the other is perfect for snow riding. The Stratus was $4300 new, and the wheels were $2200 +$120 each per tire, and the fork was a couple hundred. The bike currently has the HED wheels, and a Carver carbon fork, and the stock Surly Moonlander fork is taken off, along with the other wheels, as a better set up for winter riding. The frame is Lynskey's first take on the fatbike, built out of titanium, with a full Shimano XT groupset (minus the crank, which is Raceface, as Shimano doesn't make a fatbike crankset). The bike has been ridden a couple or few dozen times, once in light snow, and then mostly stored as a new job, new bab,y etc got in the way of riding. My wife wants me to thin the herd in the garage a bit, and since I haven't been able to ride in the winter, this one makes the most sense to lose, despite how awesome it is. As stated previously, the bike is currently set up for awesome summer riding, and the Carver fork and HED wheels dropped several pounds off the bike, while the Surly fork and wheels are perfect (WIDE) for snow, when weight isn't as important.
