Shifting the scoop, scooping the shift

While the big time cycling press is falling all over themselves to review, photograph and gush over the new Shimano Dura Ace electronic road group and the new Campagnolo 11 speed Super Record group, nippleworks has the scoop. Nashbar just began selling their own 10 speed shifter set for the bargain price of $149 a pair. Want to spruce up that old road bike with more modern components? Need to replace the stock Shimano shifter on your crashed bike? Packed your Ultegra's full of mud during cyclocross? Not sponsored or independently wealthy? Pick up a pair of these.

Wow, this changes the playing field completely! And I just bought a new set of Aero levers thinking I was going to turn that old Ten speed into another SS/Fixie.

Ten speed, say hello to 20 speeds! That is, if the rear frame spacing can handle it.
