In order to help with "the future development of new component generations" Shimano has posted a survey section on its website. It's meant to be for owners of bikes fitted with the new XTR or XT gruppos but there's also an option for those customers who've test ridden bikes with the new kit. After wading through the 20 questions and supplying an email address, the survey respondent is entered into a draw to win XTR goodies.

The first prize is a complete XTR group with disc brakes, wheels and pedals. There are also three sets of XTR tubeless wheels, five pairs of snappily-named Shimano shoes (SH-M221) together with a pair of PD-M959 pedals; ten sets of XTR cycling clobber; and eight pairs of XTR sunglasses.
"We’re looking forward to a lot of participants and comments," said Harald Troost, PR officer for Shimano Europa GmbH.
