Shimano electronic shifting - in the NY Times!

Tamar thinks it's because the Amgen Tour of California has just begun, but I'm not sure. 

This piece, about Shimano's new electronic shifting for racing bicycles, is...sound of trumpets...the Most Emailed Article in the NY Times! I'm not all that impressed by the shifting stuff, but all that attention from Times readers? That's amazing!

Its nice to know that you can now spend as much greenery on a bike as you can on a car. From the Times article: "...Later this year, Giant, the largest bicycle manufacturer in the world, will offer a bike designed to use only electronic parts for about $14,000..."

Wonder what they will give me in trade on my Subaru?
