General Information
Group Family General Info: Shimano's second in line road group set, introduced in the 1970's as the 600.  The 600 group became the 600 Ultegra and then dropped the 600 all together to become the modern Ultegra groupset.
General Info: The Shimano 600 AX groupset was the second line of shimano's Aerodynamic set of groups comprised if the Dura-Ace AX, 600 AX, and Adamas AX groups.  Every part of the AX groups were designed to be as aerodynamic as possible, as evident by the brakes, seatposts and almost every other part in the group.  The AX groups also used shimano's 1" diameter axle Dyna-Drive pedal system.
