BikeRadar has indicated that SRAM is about to drop an epic new groupset. SRAM's new rear derailleur no longer needs a battery of any kind, has parts that can be replaced, and actually has a pulley that recharges your derailleur as you ride. We think Shimano should be concerned (or, at least, if Shimano brakes weren't head and shoulders above SRAM...).
We hear that this groupset's gonna drop in March 2023 and can't wait to see this on customer bikes/do custom builds with it. Should you have any interest in getting a build going with it, drop us a line!
The rain might be over for now, but a couple of our shop guys went ahead and installed some fenders on their bikes for more year round riding fun. Bryan got the René Herse fenders and Luke snagged the SimWorks fenders (both made by Honjo). For those tempted to do the same, we found this rad informational from Jitensha. Y'all fender? Or do you think that fenders are only for commuter bikes/dad bikes?
