Instant push button shifts.

Uphill full stormin - shift the big rings, or the little rings. NOW. No hesitation.

Automatic trim adjust - you got the bike all crossed up, no problem, it'll sort it out for you.

Weighs something like 41 grams more than normal shift kit, but there's no weight anywhere except down in the center of the bike.

Apparently not on the market. Gonna be unobtanium for awhile.

Hincapie and Garmin will be racing it this season.

Cool beans for you techies.



Then again, I rode Mavic Zap and thought it was the bee's knees. That was, till the battery wore out! Good thing it turned into SS when that happened.

I'm a cyclist that rides motos, not a moto rider that rides bicycles.
