With the news that Shamano is going to offer the Shimano 105 5800
and knowing that the 105 5800 will be compatible with the new ST-RS685

Do you think Specialized, Trek, Giant, Cannodale, etc will offer carbon bikes with the Shimano 105 5800 and the ST-RS685 Hydraulic disc brakes in 2015?

Any insider information on the 2015 model of bikes having this combination?

The big news is that Shimano has now expanded hydraulic disc technology to work with a mechanical drivetrain rather than the Di2-only previous components. This has been achieved by the company introducing the ST-RS685, a new dual-control lever that houses 11-speed shifting internals alongside the guts of Shimano's hydraulic brake. The 11-speed shifter can be paired with the drivetrain of Shimano’s Dura-Ace and Ultegra mechanical groups as well as this latest version of 105.
