    I think the 2008 have gold colored bolt for mounting the derailleur to the bike, but the 2007 is silver. I have '08 and it's gold...can't confirm the color for '07. That gold coloration makes a huge difference. I find I'm clearing stuff I never cleared before because of that sucker.

    SHIFTERS: no change since 05
    rear DER: no change since 05 either. (08 has gold letters, gold anodized bolt, and all cages are carbon)

    no mechanical changes.

    Shifters: no change since 07 which have a different barrel adjuster than earlier models.
    Rear Der: 08 medium and long cages have alloy inner cage plate and carbon fiber outer plate.
