Timelines are a pretty important factor when restoring one of our beloved rides. I'm quite a particular person when it comes to this, and imagine I'm not alone (am I?) in my quest for period perfection! I remember seeing a website about a year ago that printed a description of all products and their production timelines.
We should probably create our own and expand it to include weights and available colours.

Anyway, does anyone know of this website?

It would further help the cause.

The only thing I have is the Shimano groups, and a timeline table of changes, but not yet other parts, I'm planning to ad GT and Rock Shox so far.
[Offtopic:
btw: Carsten, do you know the optical changes in M900 and M910 rear derailleur and CS-M900 AND CS-M900i?]

On the whole it's great but there are a few errors here and there, so don't take it as gospel. :wink:

Well, I've had a good read through and there are some minor details that are out and so many components that are missing, especially from the UK.
