I think these are wonderful, simply because they look the cats whiskers. Got a pair sat in a box, why - because I can't get them to operate with sufficient power to make them safe out on the road. also got a 1st gen dura ace rear mech with the 'ladder' ratchet - stunning design but hugely fiddly and not that great in operation.

First gen Shimano are my choice :)

What do you mean Finney about the rear mech? Just not sure as I was working in a bike shop when they came out.

operation isn't that great going back up the gears from 6th to 1st, ok when dropping the other way though - just my observation. the ratchet ladder is a bit sticky? if you know of any tips to make it run smooth in both directions then i'm all ears. does look the business though.

and if anyone knows a surefire way of getting the 600 delta calipers to work without having to employ prayers & voodoo then perhaps start a thread with a guide - that I would be very interested in...

I love AX stuff, I have 600 brakes and would love those DA one too, although not a great deal of difference between them.

On the off chance, if anyone has hoods for either I would be very interested in purchasing them.

Festive regards,

Richard
