Not necessarily. I got '08's for $120. But there's no reason to pay more for the 08's though.....maybe within $5-10 I would, but there really isn't any practical difference.

I suspect the 08's should start to get cheaper too....since Avid already announced the release of the Elixir next year.

Wasn't harping on you....sorry for making you "write" more. I know how annoying the keyboard is. :D :thumbsup:

I did a quick search on Speedgoat: http://www.speedgoat.com/productB.asp?part=129379&cat=26&brand=16 $130 but no tax (assuming you're not in PA). So it's not $120 but prices fluctuate. The point is that you can find them for about the same price as 07's so get the 08's if $10-15 doesn't bother you. I didn't bother to search other sites so I'm sure you can find something close to $120ish.

Dont the 07's have a plastic adjusting knob versus the anodized aluminum on the 08's?
No, 06 version have plastic knobs. Also have the split handlebar clamps (don't need to remove grips) and work with match maker to join it to SRAM shifters.
My guess is that 07 to 08 is pretty similar (maybe they shaved 20g or so)
