Well I am at the show in Taipei. I am working here, so I don't get to see much other than when it is closed and I am wondering back to the taxi queue.

Anyway... pics taken yesterday....

you say new rival?

Is it new finish only? Or some redesign is included?

Does anybody know if SRAM incorporated any of the mechanical improvements of the new Red group into the lesser groups?

Two words for you: DURA ACE!

Is there anything you can say or show about the new DA?

Not yet. However I am an accessory manufacturer, not a bike manufacture. They have no reason to show it to me. :cry:

Spoke to Shimanski, they said "no". 09 DA is only for OEM manufacturers and is on the fifth and closed floor (OEM only). There is an embargo for a reason, and I have to respect that. Sorry.

My cycling shoes are in a cupboard in Germany. I assure you, their lives are very very tame!
