<p><span style="font-weight: 400">New bikes and kit hit the market in a seemingly endless stream, with continual updates rendering products obsolete at a terrifying pace. </span></p>

</div>
<p><a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/components/groupsets/groupset-road/shimano-dura-ace-r9100-review/"><span style="font-weight: 400">Shimano’s current R9100-series Dura-Ace groupset is a technological </span><i><span style="font-weight: 400">tour de force</span></i></a><span style="font-weight: 400">. An 11-speed masterpiece that offers hydraulic disc brakes and electronic shifting as options. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">It’s a far cry from the 9-speed Dura-Ace 7700 groupset that launched more than two decades ago but, somehow, a remnant of that nineties groupset lives on. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">The Dura-Ace Track FC-7710 </span><a href="https://bike.shimano.com/en-EU/product/component/duraacetrack-7710/FC-7710.html"><span style="font-weight: 400">is still listed as a current product on Shimano’s website</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400"> and </span><a href="https://www.awin1.com/cread.php?awinmid=1302&amp;awinaffid=489797&amp;clickref=0&amp;p=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.evanscycles.com%2Fshimano-dura-ace-7710-track-crankset-EV157592" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><span style="font-weight: 400">you can still buy it new</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400">. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">This gorgeous crank uses <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/buyers-guides/the-complete-guide-to-bottom-bracket-standards/">the splined Octalink bottom bracket interface that has since been superseded by Hollowtech II and press-fit designs</a>.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">Its continued existence can be credited to the fact that track bike drivetrains don’t really </span><i><span style="font-weight: 400">need </span></i><span style="font-weight: 400">to get any more technologically advanced. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">That said, it’s perhaps somewhat surprising that Shimano hasn’t knocked out single-ring versions of any of its subsequent Dura-Ace cranks, if only for the sake of product harmony and also because why wouldn’t it?</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">Even more impressively, the square taper FC-7600 cranks that preceded the 7710s are </span><a href="https://www.tracksupermarket.com/cranks/cranks-chain-rings-bottom-brackets/shimano-dura-ace-fc-7600-track-crank-set-njs.html"><span style="font-weight: 400">still available new from selected shops</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400">. </span></p>
