Having spent two seasons on a hacked 1 x 10 on the D-Plus , a factory release of a 1 x 11 is expected and welcomed.
As with SRAM's MTB 1 x 11, it'll work great and demand you're in shape. From the PR released today...
• Based on our 1X philosophy of a purpose built system utilizing SRAM’s
X-SYNC™, X-HORIZON™, Type-2™ and Exact Actuation™ technologies
• Perfect gear ratios for CX racing with improved shifting
• Extremely light weight, 205g savings over Force22 2X
• Better overall system durability
And expect eye rolling from the old CX racers that ran 1 chain ring attached to a 3 speed Sturmey with two external cogs and thought that was luxurious...
Back in the day. Once we ride this group, we'll have more to report with a take from too.
Bike Hugger® is bike culture blogged. As a group blog, with different voices, we cover diverse topics, but the bike centers us. You won’t find a marketing box to put us in or a label to slap onto what we do. Much of it is in the moment and we try to do interesting, epic stuff.
We also believe the bike is a connector with web designers, developers, and creative professionals. That’s why you’ll find us at events like SXSW with our Mobile Socials
For the past 8 years we’ve built an audience on our blog and in social channels, like Twitter, G+, Instagram, Flickr, Facebook, and Tumblr(s). We publish photos on Flickr, videos on YouTube, and podcasts on iTunes.
We just launched an ad-free, subscription-based Magazine for iOS devices and it's available on iTunes
