Does anybody know what they are testing here?
Bike-magazine FIETS released this video without any comments. Chorus EPS V3 with long cage or something? It's not wireless, you can see 3 lines at the front of the bike.

Looks like all bike magazines are pushed to show teasers. It better be worth it.....
but I didnt see any discs on the video and there were wires. So what else can it be?

Surely after all this time of production like finished pictures......discs will rear their ugly heads?

Probably shouldn't break the NDA that i signed, but I'm far too exited to not say that they have done away with the thumb shifter - revolutionary and game changing.

Ha... but I love my thumb shifter. They wouldn't do that, would they? :shock:
Unless they had to move it to make space for hydraulic brake levers and bigass reservoirs. Damn discs are ruining everything road :lol:

Yes, I didn't think so... but it was funny. Who knows.

They have given up trying to get their disc caliper working for groupset launch and are using a Magura one.

I would bet all my bikes that Campagnolo wishes the whole disc brakes on high end road bikes thing would just die a timely death and leave the disc brake market to mountain bikes, cruisers, commuters etc.... basically just leave the high end road racing bicycle with high end, high performance, easily serviceable, lightweight brake systems that don't require a complete frame/drivetrain redesign and handling compromises in the form of longer chainstays etc., and added weight.
