Not sure how this will affect US retailers; however, this acquisition could definitely help Shimano’s PRO component business. Let the speculation begin:
Could we see a move that ties Shimano and PRO into one fitting program?
New fitting lectures from this major component supplier?
PRO branded fitting tools?
We’ll have to wait and see.
