Update: What's Going On With Shimano's New XTR Group?
@yzedf: haaaa the good old internet warrior who thinks hes smarter...lol NO, I did not buy a an incomplete drivetrain knowing it might end up where I am now.....We’re talking about Shimano here, not some small aftermarket custom maker...At first Shimano had said the cranks would be available before Christmas, so I figured I could wait a few weeks to get the cranks knowing I wouldn’t get the bike until February anyway.Then is was January, then February and last time I was told April.We are finding out just NOW that they are having difficulties making these , wellllll after they officialy released the product and several months after their original delivery dates. (these kinda of manifacturing issues are normally taken care of BEFORE releasing new product btw ) .What prevented them to inform their customers about the issues? Why didnt they simply tell they wouldn’t be able to meet their delivery dates and chosen to keep the truth from us?They essentially lied about the delivery dates hoping for what?That people wouldn’t notice they are several months behind without any explanation?? Im sorry but thats not something youd normally expect from an industry leader.You telling me you saw that one coming? Lol, please your ENTIRE country didnt even see that clown you call your president would win the election ... lol, yeah, you’re sooooo clever. When was the last time you saw any other manufacturers come up with an article like the one above? This is not normal behaviour, its completely backwards and there’s cleary something wrong at Shimano

@Saether: You’re not too good at reading are you ? “ On others, it might vibrate while pedaling or wear out extremely quickly“ In my book I call that premature wear but perhaps I should have used a simpler vocabulary: it wears out fucking quick...Is that better ?

@preston67:Seen that tread and many others actually, Absolutely Black are only offering chanrings for OLD Shimano style cranksets , none for RaceFace or others... Personally I have no desire to purchased a discontinued product to use witb my brand new drivetrain... As for using a Sram master link I find it highly unlikely it would resolve the issue.The entire chain as the same links spacing and I fail to understand how replacing ONE link would magically make every other links work perfectly.

according to Pivots websites they are using RaceFace crankset with Shimano chains ... wonder if they are running a different chainring ????

@niconj: you clearly didnt read the article...running a different will cause premature wear of the cassette and you’ll loose hyperglide shifting performance.

“we don’t want to force people into that situation because we don’t have a crank to sell them”.... and yet that’s exactly what you are doing! Been sitting on a brand new drivetrain for months now,was told the cranks would be available before Christmas, then January and the lastest Ive heard from my shop was APRIL.With my new frame finally arriving next week, I cant wait any longer...Im now forced to sell the drivetrain ( most likely at a lost ????) because I cant buy a compatible crankset...this is completely dumb. This issue was so poorly handled and Its screwing up your customers across the board big time.Based on that little marketing pr, Shimano clearly dont give a shit about their customers.As it occurred to you that people are loosing money on this?How is that possible that no one at Shimano offered a solution at this point ?It would have been easy to adress the situation months ago .You could have subcontracted small manufacturers such as wolftooth or Absolute Black to produce compatible chainrings for other cranksets like RaceFace or Ethirteen, or better yet, work with other crankset manufacturers to remedy this shit show and help people getting into the new xtr drivetrain. You guys dropped the ball and youre letting the customer foot the bill for your mistake. NEVER AGAIN SHIMANO,the product may be good but I will never ever put my trust into your brand...
