Hello Folks,

Could anyone tell me the last year Shimano 600 groupo was made? I know it then became Ultegra.

Thanks
It was called Ultegra, but had 600 graphics on itFez

The current 9 speed Ultegra (1998-Present) was the first time it was labeled "Shimano Ultegra."

The prior generation (1990ish to 1997), which was 7 and 8 speed, was called Ultegra, but it was labeled "Shimano 600" and had some blue/green stickers on it.

It was called Shimano 600 in prior generations as well (1980s).
I always called it junk!the bull
