Our purchasing department was lucky enough to ride the new Shimano M780 XT gruppo along with the new XTR Shadow Plus rear derailleur last week in Idllywild, CA. On Thursday they rode the 24 hour course at Hurkey Creek and on Friday sampled the great singletrack at Alvin Meadows which is a 15 minute pedal from town. They both came away super impressed with the new XT brakes, how precise and smooth the shifting was, and how well new trail and race pedals put the power down. PricePoint will be stocking all the new XT M780 products and XTR Shadow Plus derailleur as soon as they are available.
