Hi all, I really don't know, the early Superbe was real nice, nice to look at, nice to use & easy on the pocket. I feel they lost the plot when they made the Superbe pro, some of the items lacked the nice finish & quailty that was with the Superbe. I guess the Italian parts snobery may also have something to do with it.
   Maybe they had some hardships that made them loose market share esp when Shimano really took of with the MTB ( can I use such words? ) scene that really seemed to take off, and indeed still does when someone rabbits on about MTB stuff, shimano this and shimano that, ra ra ra, in one ear and out the other, but I better sign of before I get carried away......regards wayne davidson Invers NZ........
