Shimano XTR: Upclose

The new Shimano XTR is way sweet. Too bad it’s too expensive! But I went over to Jax Bicycles in Fullerton to check out what they had on display.

I took some shots so we can all drool over it.

Here’s a Trek Fuel EX 9.5….Carbon Frame laced with XTR.

XTR rear derailleur.

XTR hydraulic brakes

XTR Cranks

XTR shifters and brakes

All this XTR and Carbon stuff isn’t cheap…it does come with a price tag.
