I've been combing the web for info on the cassette variations that will be available for the new DA 10-speed to no avail.

DA 9-speed currently has 11-23 and 12-25 options. Anyone know if Shimano will offer an 11-25 in the 10-speed, or do you think they'll just toss another cog in the existing 12-25 configuration?

Thanks for the post. I had been on the Shimano USA site and found nothing but a PR blurb.

I wish Shimano would use the extra cog to give us a wider gear range! I don't have a 16 right now, and don't miss it.
I often wish I had a bigger gear than a 53-12 for fast descents though.

C'est la vie!

I saw it on the cyclingnews or velonew sites, and I don't think that there will be an 11-25. The new 12-25 will just give you the 16. Same as the 11-23 will do.
