CyclingTips Podcast: Drivetrain futures and hate for new standards

by Caley Fretz


It’s all tech, all the time this week. Caley Fretz and James Huang are joined by Dave Rome to run through the future of road drivetrains from all three major manufacturers, plus a look at players trying to break in like FSA and Rotor. We talk 12-speed, trickle down wireless from SRAM, the future of EPS, and more.

Plus, plenty of hate for closed-off standards, 1x drivetrains that are dropping chains, and electronics that just won’t work. No drivetrain company escapes our ire this week.
