To all you mtb nuts (don't mean that in a bad way, I want to try it aswell in the new year). I played with the new XTR groupset at the Cycle Expo yesterday and I must say it does not feel right. The shifting intigrated into the brake lever is fine seeing that we've had that on road groups for ages, but how can you shift up (tighten the cable) and the chain jumps to a lower gear and when you release it jumps back up. It makes more sence to use "force" to go big and "release" to go small, like in ALL the other sets, road and off-road. Where did Shimano fall of the bus?
