Besides the Big 3 (Campy, Shimano and SRAM), what else is there?

What other companies are worthy of consideration for good parts?

Hey... don't knock until you try it. Microshift is the Megawesome.

1. Sampson Stratics = Microshift = Sunrace Driven
--supposedly about 105 level, never actually played with it.

2. Tiso, I believe, announced an 11 speed set before Campy - I don't know the status of that

3. The not very secret FSA group

4. Not racing oriented, but there are all the internal hubs out there as well (e.g. Rohloff, NuVinci, S-A)

Microshift is nowhere near 105. I would even go as far as to say its worse than Sora.

Shifts like crap, awkward to use, feels very flimsy.

Pretty sure Token has a group. Stay away from the Nashbar stuff though. Its complete crap. Why would get anything other than the 'big 3'? Its so much easier to maintain one of those groups. Something breaks, you can easily get the part to fix it or just get a whole new part (used or new) right off ebay or wherever else.

Rossetti, they're new to the game and claim to be made in Italy but it's pretty cheap for Italian, but that might be local prices direct from the manufacturer since their warehouse is like 100 miles away.
