Update: What's Going On With Shimano's New XTR Group?
The thing that really kills me is that for 20+ years SRAM has used the standard Shimano spline for 8-11 speed cassettes that allowed for 11 teeth. SRAM then develops a new standard to allow for 10 tooth cassettes years ago. Instead of using that already developed standard Shimano has to create a new cassette standard to accommodate 10 tooth cassettes. Now I won't be able to re-use wheels if I want to swap drive trains. Really??? Please spend your time innovating on shifting instead of making life more difficult for riders. What is the benefit?
