Here's the Pinkbike interview https://www.pinkbike.com/news/shimanos- ... lable.html

It's interesting because it contradicts the CT story slightly - the delay on the crank wasn't just from the anodising fire but because they're having to redesign it to make it mass producable.

Also kinda incredible that this is the second time they've 'launched' the Scylence hub technology and the second time they've withdrawn it because it doesn't work.

Right, so 203mm XTR rotors were delayed until February. Now the delay has moved to June. JUNE! For a rotor! Come on, Shimano... Don't announce products and make us wait a year for it...

They break in and eventually feel like old XTR...which still isn't as nice as higher end SRAM, but it is what it is.

Wolftooth finally released 104mm 4 bolt rings for XTR 12- So I will have that on my bike in a couple of days.

I asked them about this a couple of months ago and they stated they had no plans to make them.... Are they round or oval?

Does anyone have any experience with these as yet?
I've heard that they will not fit all prior 240 hubs due to the use of a concaved washer... Does anyone know what year models this would effect?

Thx
