Shimano Bicycle System Components (1986)

This catalogue is remarkably slim and strikingly unglossy - but it displays a killer range - and displays it clearly and in an understated way that catches the interest.

Note that SIS is only offered as an option on the New 600EX groupset and is not offered at all on Deore XT or any of the mountain bike gear sets. People often forget that, following the Positron debacle, the success of Shimano’s indexing system was far from assured.

Unfortunately someone had removed pages 5 to 8 from my copy. These pages deal with Dura-Ace 7400 - and you can find much of the missing information in the brochure devoted to this groupset.
