It's not going to be much fun for non-circular chain-ring aficionados who want to use Rotor Q-rings or Osymmetrics.

They'll just have to use the Rotor cranks or older DA ones like they do now then. The guys who do already know their shifting isn't going to be optimum.

Because by the time I can afford each generation of Dura-Ace gear Shimano has often stopped making parts for it. :p

I still like to mix and match my sram shifters and derailleurs with shimano cranksets and brakes :huh:

Though not on a road bike I suppose

Cool, a Trance 29er.

Not too hot about the Dr. Seuss designed front end, but I can only assume it'll look better IRL.

Shimano Dura ace AX 1981-84, design appears to have been copied many times:

Even Campy did a similar brake in 1985.

I assume you're wondering where the photograph was sourced, and would like further details of the bike.

Google told me to look here and here.

Damn I'm awesome at The Internet.
