    Jenson has the 2012 XT line up, they claim shipping in 2-3 weeks.

    Mt local bike shops (Ontario, Canada) didn't even know there was a new XT group. They all looked at me like I was confused about the Dynasty group. I guess the Shimano rep showed up 10 mins after I left my favorite store and gave them a brochure. They told me they can have parts in their hands at the end of July.

    Four weeks ago, I went to my LBS. Told them I wanted 785 brakes, front and back. Also want 785 Ispec shifters. Rotors are not available yet. They contacted Shimano, and placed items on back-order. Supposedly, they are stuck in customs at Long Beach. Tired of waiting. eBay is looking more promising via Asia. Rotors are same as XTR? Around $59.99?

    My wait is over. LBS called me today, with news of my new parts in hand. XT 785 brakes front and rear, and Ispec shifters. Will be installed tomorrow. VERY stoked. Pics soon.

    Jenson lists the crankset. Says ships in 2-3 weeks. Has said this for several weeks.

    Haven't seen shifters listed anywhere. As far as BTI, I wouldn't know. Check with your LBS? Isn't BTI a distributor? Similar to Quality?

    No, didn't get rotors. Currently have 6 bolt Avid G3 Cleansweep 185mm. Going to use those until the 6 bolt IceTech rotors are available.

    Awesome! 6 Bolt ice techs are available on universalcycles.com

    Do you or anyone else have a weight for the m785 brake set?

    Sorry, should have clarified...looking for an 'actual' weight from a consumer rather than the 'claimed' weight from the manufacturer.

    242g seems a bit light considering the XTR trails are 235g front and 250g rear.

    Sorry, I don't have a scale. I can't speculate on the weight, other than the "claimed" figures. I do agree they are "claimed" awfully close to XTR.

    A buddy of mine

    just ordered a 2012 black XT kit (minus brakes) and told me the expected delivery date would be 7/25 - 8/4.
    Can you hear me now?

    Is there now a reason to buy....

    ....xtr now with the new xt grouppo? Besides weight savings what is the benefit of xtr over xt?

    Looks? The shifter feel is different. The XTR brakes are proven winners. XT probably will be too... weight is the biggest difference between the two groups.
