Shimano Bicycle Parts

Shimano has a long history like most bicycle part manufacturers that started with one young entrepreneural and energetic young man. In this case a fellow by the name of Shozaburo Shimano. He started Shimano Iron Works in 1921 with the production of a bicycle freewheel.

This fledgling company spent the next 30 years developing the prototypes for internal and external gear change systems which lay the ground work for their reputation today.

Shimano Bicycle Components:

Deore XT: this is a series of MTB Shimano Bicycle Parts developed and brought to market in 1982

XTR: In 1994 Shimano introduced the XTR Series of ultra-lightweight high performance MTB components for off-road riders.

Dura-Ace: A line of Shimano bicycle parts for road cyclists, introduced in 1984 with the new Shimano Index System (SIS) for shifting.
