9200 hoods? Look like a mix of 9100 and grx 815 if so.

If this does have that higher pivot point for the lever like GRX has, that will be all I need to be stoked about it.

also stoked to see they worked in more ergonomics for draping palms over top of hoods in aero position. One of the drawbacks of SRAM for me which is small potatoes but still nice to see.

From Page 23 from the 2020 UCI Illegal Specialized thread. Apparently from a promo image for the new Spec (although it may just be a bad photoshop job).
This board would be a nicer place if everyone would take themselves less seriously.

Those hood are hideous. They are so bulbous it reminds me of The shape of the nose of a troll or something.

why would it be? DA is not for commuters, it wouldn't make any sense.

Looks like a render, the rest of the group on the Aethos looks like current DA. Why would only new hoods be in the image?

for those who have seen the presentation. did big S indicate next gen DA will be electronic shifting only? and rim brake counter part also continues? :beerchug:
Some say pour 10ml water out of your bottle to save that last bit of the weight. Sorry, i go one step further, i tend to the rider off my bikes. :thumbup:
