    We the people ... FSA enters drivetrain market!

    Yep! And not just a few parts, they will have chains, derailleurs, shifters to add to their cranksets. Read about it here (shameless plug) or here (real source)...

    Yes, but it might be a while before mountain groups from FSA show up at our LBS. Still, good news to us!

    I agree it will be good for all...the SRAM vs Shimano rivalry in the mountain bike market has been a big benefit to the consumer. Both companies have really up'd their products in the last few years. I'll be curious what kind of shifting (if FSA makes shifters) mechanisms they will come up with to get around the Shimano, SRAM, and Campy (for road obviously) patents.

    bbgobie: You are confused with Truvativ who were bought by SRAM.

    mtnbiker72: They will make shifters....

    Neither will I ditch my XTR, at least at first... I think. Too early to tell, we don't even have a clue how it will work, how it will be designed, how it will look.

    Let's reinvent the wheel and raise prices yet again. Force and Rival anyone?

    FWIW, the Force/Rival groups (to me) have INFINITELY better ergonomics than the shimano 10sp offerings. If I wasn't such a penny pincher on my road bike, I'd get a full rival group.

    And the double tap is just fricken dreamy....:drool:
