    Shimano Euro Web Site--->Trash...

    The same marketing department that redid the US site has done the European site and removed all the information! It now has the same look, feel and fluff. A valuable resource just went to he!!. I kept telling myself that I should download all of the pdfs and now it's too late. - TF

    Bottom line-----now you'll need to give them a credit card # to get the pdfs.

    Buying parts to hang on your bike is always easier than getting fit.

    If you feel wimpy and weak, get out and train more, ya wee lassie!

    It seems that most of pdf's are available from Technical Services -> Technical Documents
    and now they are actually more easily available...

    Yea? I can't find the view for my ST-6510 shifters. 6501? 6500? 7700-C maybe? They were all on the old site. - TF

    The German site wins. I didn't even know there was a ST-6500B. - TF

    -> type ST-6510 to search box. Found
    6501?
    -> Not found
    6500?
    -> As above, type 6500 to search box, found it.
    7700-C maybe?
    ->As above, most 7700 series components found

    New site is fairly slow though.
    I agree that it's really annoying when companies remove "old products" from their websites, at least Cannondale has bikes from 2000 onwards on their site. I wish all mfgrs would keep at least 5 year model archive on their websites...
