Dura Ace Triple...When?James

I saw a post here not to long ago regarding Dura Ace triple in Japan. I was just looking at Shimano's site(Euro) and saw The triple in the " New news" section. Does anyone know when it will be out in the USA? If you go on the Shimano site nad select Euro, You can see a pic of it and all the info.
The question is why? Not when.Bruno S

There is only one valid application: If you need 180mm cranks in a triple. For all other cases get Ultegra and save some money.
That may be mostly true, but...Lucky

After all the complaints I've heard about the Ultegra shifters rattling and failing, I'm keeping one eye on my Ultegra shifters and one eye out for the DuraAce triple STI levers to hit the market. If mine end up having the shifting problems others have experienced, I may get the Dura Ace 3X shifters (I have an Ultregra 3X drivetrain). I've had a couple isolated incidents where I push one lever, and both move, which is one of the reported failure modes. So far, it's only a rare occurance. For the rest of the drivetrain, I agree with you.
