The latest Bicycling magizine has a two page picture of an electronic Dura-Ace shifter. Is this just a concept or will they be for sale soon?

The picture shows an airplane joystick (handle) on the right and the DA shifter on the left. They've been running similar type adds the last couple of months.

They are trying to say the two are one in the same.

Is it the April issue?

If so, think about it.

Hmm, maybe some other outlandish articles in there like "Cars banned on all roads from 9:00 Am to 6:00 PM."

April fools!]

Lets not forget about the failed Shimano Airlines. It was a pneumatic shifting system for downhill MTBr's. It was a dismal failure. Maybe this is along the same lines.

Putting this one to rest...

I think it's pretty obvious. The page on the right shows the cockpit of an airplane. The page on the left shows the front of the DA shifter. They carefully aligned the pics to make you look twice. Try again...There is no electric DA.

Wow!!!

What a knucklehead. This is how BS starts circulating. As soon as I saw the ad I thought it was obvious. WOW.

You won`t need a bell or dog spray either, because you could just launch a few sidewinders off and take care of business.

In leiu of sidwinders I believe they decided to install a multi-barrel paint ball weapon with automatic feed.
