    Shimano 2013 XT

    Does anyone have the info for the new XT line up?
    I hear SLX has the same clutch in the rear as XTR did in 2012.
    I'm looking at going 10sp so there no point me buying now if something new is coming out in a few months. What's the normal release date of things for Shimano?

    Since we are at this discussion it would be very useful to get Shimanos 2012 and 2013 lineup and intended use .. if someone that knows could be bothered

    Anyone know if the XT brakes will change at all, or if there will be XT Trail group vs XT Race group. Am contemplating waiting for the new group (if there are multiple changes coming) vs buying the current group and upgrade the rear derailleur to Shadow+ model later (if that is the only difference anyway).

    Thanks,

    I suppose on that note does anyone know if a 2012 XTR Shifter, 2012 XT cassette 10spd will work with the new 2013 XT+ Dérailleur?
