What give's? I've seen pics of their 10-speed components (Dura-Ace) for some time now on project bike's but the staff over at Shimano seems to be so tight lipped that nobody's seems to know if the 2004 models will be released with them.. The last thing I want is to buy a new bike, 2003, only to replace the shifters/deraillers/cassette/etc, for 10-speed upgrade.

Which all say early next year. Your comment about the "staff over at Shimano" suggests you've been talking to some serious insiders (or was it just a customer service rep at Shimano USA?) Shimano is expectedly reluctant to announce a release date, because there are a bunch of people like you who would deep six DA sales for the rest of this year if they knew the ship date.
My insider, who's REALLY inside says @ Xmas!(nm)merckx56
