Speculation Arises Around Wiggle Buyout By German Retail Giant Signa Sports
Thank goodness. Leaves a few at least decent options out there.

Speculation Arises Around Wiggle Buyout By German Retail Giant Signa Sports
@dude-brah: Bike Discount is best in Europe (in my opinion), with Bike 24 being solid now that they bought back out of the Wiggle group, and Jenson USA being decent for north america. I've bought a lot of stuff in Canada from Bike24.

If they decided to spin CRC back out that would be great. They've been shite since the merger.

Field Trip: Devinci's $2,299 Marshall is a Capable All-Rounder
@J-Sheridan: the "Shigura" solution is popular by using a Magura lever and master cylinder (one problem solved) along with magura "Royal blood" or other mineral oil (as opposed to stock shimano) along with Shimano caliper. Solves both potential problems if you're willing to put in the work.

@nyloracoftheshore: as above, details copy/pasted from a blog where they examine the issue in detail: the cause of the problem is the high Shimano mineral oil viscosity at low temperatures (viscosity being, in layman's terms, the resistance of fluids to flow freely; water has very low viscosity and flows easily, while e.g. honey has high viscosity and oozes slowly), combined with the small orrifices of the Shimano levers' inlet and compenstaing ports through which oil flows between the master cylinder and the brake fluid reservoir.

@J-Sheridan: if you google shimano wandering bite point you'll see that it's not related to servo wave - I can verify based on being the owner and mechanic on dozens of sets of shimano brakes of different levels.

Its a cylinder issue hence the "Shigura" solution. I've had it on several generations of Shimano brakes and never found it to be a huge issue.

All Shimano brakes have the possibility of wandering bite point - it has nothing to do with the specific models but rather a cylinder issue.

@Jvisscher: Sorry, I'm honestly not sure what your reply is trying to say. Could you please clarify?
