After a disastrous release (and recall) of hydraulic road brakes , SRAM is back and ready to ride with a three different groups featuring disc brakes and mechanical shifting. We just received the Rival 22 group and peeled off most of the wrapping to show it to you.
We’ve got a frame set on the way to mount everything up, and a pretty fancy set of wheels from Zipp in the works to keep us rolling. These parts arrived just in time for the weather to get truly awful, so we aren’t going to take it easy on this group. And with that low gearing for the crank, and a frame with some tire clearance, it will is see its fair share of dirt as well as pavement, and perhaps the fast side of the course tape at a cyclcocross race or two. And maybe, just maybe, if family plans and a damaged shoulder agree, another attempt at the Dirty Dozen.Tweet Print
