    I can already hear all the retro grouches that swear by their 7 speed groups whining.

    For 2011:

    10 speed XX
    10 speed X.0
    10 speed XTR
    10 speed XT
    10 speed SLX

    heck i know some folks still riding on their old XTR 950 8 speed stuff and think it's great and the 952 (9speed) XTR was the last of the good offroad shimano groups in my opinion the flipper shifting of the 960 stuff just never caugh on with me.

    yes the 950/952 XTR group set offered many more options such as removable spider for various gearing options along with everything worked well.

    the 960 with the flipper shifters and weak disc brakes is what weaned me off of shimano and onto sram products the 970 was not that great either when compared to sram.

    sram is so far ahead of shimano in the off road arena that shimano is going to have to come up with some di2 stuff for the next xtr group to make it worthwhile 10 speed alone isn't going to get it done.

    I’m not a shimano hater i love my dura ace 7800 stuff on my bikes it just seems that sram gave some extra thought when developing their off road stuff tho'

    Oh now you have done it by disrespecting one of my all time favorite groups!



    lucky for you your did not sully the name of Pink Floyd or there woulda been fisticuffs.

    don't worry you newbies that haven't been around long enough to appreciate the beauty of the old XTR 950 groupset will find some other new fad sport soon enough and leave us retrogrouches alone.

    Dear elderberry breath,
    Don't make fun of my foot!
    It's not a paddlefoot...it's a cloven hoof.

    Horrible styling. All that black and the "10 speed !" logos scream k-mart bike.

    Take the '10 speed' mention off and the black biggest cog and it's not so bad... About the cassette, I'm wondering how it's built and it's cost because from that picture, it seems to use a similar construction as the XX cassette, it doesn't make sense to make it as light and expensive as the XX and just adding a cheap looking black big cog...

    That is curious. They show enough of it to hint that its the same. I wouldn't be surprised if its the same cassette at a lower price, subsidized by all of the XX early adopters.

    Hmmm, XTR 950....
    Great looking group, solid rear derailleur, hubs and shifters but that's about it

    Creaky cranks with stupid removable spider - fail
    V-brakes with sloppy parallelogram pivots - fail
    Bar end shifter - fail
    Front derailleur with differential plate movement is heavy and rattly - fail
