This is the latest dirt on the NEW Shimano Dura Ace.

This info comes from a source, who works for the big "S"

The new Dura Ace will be a 10 speed. Not an 11 speed grouppo. It will fit on a 9 spd spaced body with a different spline, more like Campagnolo's. It will not work on the current model spline style hubs. But, the current models will work on the new style. Also, the crankset will be exactly like the new XTR. The new 10 spd will have a narrower chain the current 10spd Campagnolo that is out there but it will fit in a 130mm spaced rear end.

More to come...
Even "S" wants to be like "C" (nm)KeeponTrekkin

if Fred is right - all of our current 9spd wheels will not work with the new 10spd cassettes - this could get expensive.
