You can search for specific components on si.shimano.com and VeloBase has a huge database of Shimano components, but it's far from being complete. Is there a definitive list of all Shimano components ever released?

  • No. Those two would have the bulk of items covered between them, with a lot of overlap. Is there a question underneath your question? ie, are you searching for something ?

  • The Wikipedia page for Shimano lists all the road and MTB groupsets that Shimano has made, with series numbers and years they were current Jan 23, 2021 at 13:19
  • Shimano released quit a few components not associated with any groupset, some of them where really neat. The FC-R700 and the BL-R600 come to mind. I'm trying to expand my knowledge about those "hidden" components.

Without being definitive (from 2004 to today), a good way I can think of is going to the archive section of the Shimano technical documentation website. By opening the specifications documents, you have access to all the parts they released over a given year sorted by category of bikes (MTB, Road, etc) and then by family of components (Brake, Crankset, etc).

The non-series components will display SHIMANO in the Series row. For example, here is an excerpt from such documents:
