One more highlight.

I met with the folks at ACROS to talk about their hydraulic drivetrain system. I asked about Road as well.
Most likely 2013 for an ACROS Road group (everything but the cranks). Hydraulic Road brakes will be available as both disc and rim options.
It will be very, very light.
And it will be expensive.

That is the ugliest bar/stem combo ever! I guess form follows function.

That's brilliant. If you're going to mount a battery, you may as well get handlebar stiffness free.

That's interesting...

I just spoke to someone who feels like they can sell a stem with eps Integration and have it be roughly the same size (large-ish) as the new Ritchey Carbon 260...

Isn't the bars the last place you want to "add" weight?

Whoa. That looks neat. How much travel could those pads have? I'm guessing you'll just have to compensate for different rim widths with spacers.

What brake levers do they intend those to be used with?

Since it's near the pivot point, it shouldn't affect steering much. It might add a few hundred grams to the front wheel load, but that's completely swamped by even small changes in body position. So I don't see how it will be an issue. But I'm just guessing.

Ashima first showed them 2~3 years ago.

I'm surprised that they are still "behind the glass". :unbelievable:

I am curious if Velocity will release an oc version of the A23 rim (in silver). Any other new wide oc rims as well.


Yes, it is confirmed. The rep at the Velocity booth showed it to me. I think I took pictures of it, but I will need to upload it on here.
