Any rumors or fact if Shimano will come out with a 10 speed upgrade in the near future? I want to snag a DA 9 after they do.

I have heard that nothing new is in the immediate future for Shimano drivetrain innovation and evolution. Also, I have heard that there may be an electronic shifting system in the works, but not to be released for a couple of years. Take this with a grain of salt, because you know about rumors!!!

For now, Shimano may be taking the stand of "Don't fix what isn't broken". They've got their 9-speed dialed in pretty well.
