Nice old school (7400?) lettering on the chain's packaging.

Why are the shifter internals so exposed? My biggest gripe with 7900 is that dirt, sweat and water can get inside the shifter body so easily.

Well, have taken delivery of various 9000 components here in the UK, but still need the as-yet-unavailable 12-28 cassette and brakes before I can finish building the bike.

Anyway, does anyone have the definitive answer on backwards compatibility of the chainset with earlier HollowTech II bottom brackets? Various reviewing websites have commented on the fact that the new one is still HollowTech II, but with some changes in design and dimensions, and giving no indications as to whether they are effectively interchangeable.

FairWheel Bikes had this to say:
The spindle remains the same 24mm diameter while the bottom bracket itself gets smaller. The cup shrinks but will come with a plastic sleeve that increases its outer diameter during installation so that existing Shimano BB tools will work with it.

RoadCC:
You’ll be pleased to know that Shimano haven’t come up with a new bottom bracket standard although they have reduced the size of the bearing they use to save a little weight. The cup diameter is also reduced so you need to use a special tool when fitting, and Shimano say they've improved the sealing. The 9000 Series will come in a standard external version and in a press-fit option.

So, has anyone used a non-Shimano, or a 7900/7800, bottom bracket with the new Dura Ace 9000 chainset? If so, did it just fit as normal? Presumably the critical factors are the length and diameter of the chainset spindle - we know it remains 24mm in diameter, but is it still the same length?

I have a nice unused Hope unit that I would like to use if possible.

Thanks for any information.

9000 is the Hollowtech II 24mm spindle.
Our BB30/PF30 Conv BB is quickly becoming the Go-To BB for many shops getting ready to install the 9000 crank onto these frames.
Rock solid. Give us a call or email if any questions!

Here is some info that we just sent out. - http://campaign.r20.constantcontact.com/render?llr=6hiviyhab&v=001gjTeQvTgjpoYAleDdzGbBJTtEjT9XvcQ1jEBh3M6kKhwTLRd3mHMhmVT42FowlCOETn9KjwtcACoAMqKuL0wPyscZm1fQT54b_f7twh87oTjrvzHT3yaAUmnVcur8ExW

Greetings from the Philippines!

been riding this for a couple of weeks, 50/34 with 11-28 at the back.

my personal experience is consistent with all the reviews. front shifting is sublime, brakes are much improved coming from the 7900. shifters feel much better in your hand and the rear shift effort stays consistent over every cog. overall, a worthy upgrade over the 7900.

I work for a Trek dealer and noticed they had a few pieces of Dura Ace 9000 come into stock. I ordered everything I needed and should have it Friday. I also picked up the Praxis BB30 adapter to use the new Dura Ace crank. I have been on Sram for a couple of years now and anyone that has used the new 9000 says it great. Now I have to decide on wheels. I could build up some 9000 hubs with Open Pro's, also noticed Trek has the 11 sp conversion for the DT Swiss 240/180 hubs. I'll let you know when I'm done.

Shouldn't the weight of the DA 9070 include the battery and harness? Don't think it will function without it. I rode the 9000 on a Evo Black yesterday and it makes 7900 seem like junk.

Coming off a 13.5 lb SuperSix I wouldn't say there's a huge difference in the frames, but the 9000 makes it feel like a different bike. The Evo Black sure is nice to look at though. I changed the seat to a Aliante, and with Speedplays and bottle cages a 60cm bike was 12.75.

Any idea when we will see the c35 and c50 clinchers? Seems like everything oem has the c24 only?

Hmmmmm. My friends at GreenEdge said that Shimano is having difficulty with the delivery of DA9000 Di2, so they can't get me my bike until Spring... :cry:
