I agree they need to move GRX to 12s ASAP. But it will also be the second generation of GRX, like going from 9100 Dura Ace to 9200 Dura Ace. It will get an updated appearance. 12s GRX involves different deraileurs and chainlines to either their MTB or road offerings, whereas 105 12s is effectively Ultegra 12s using lower cost materials. Same application, same geometries, same family resemblance/design language, less engineering.

But this will be for smaller builders like Pegoretti and some others. I have 3 on order when it's available. I've heard is going to be limited to a few hundred groups total.
Dario building gravel frames now? LOL!!!

Dario passed away 4 years ago. Some of his employees continued the company.

That looks fantastic although it's a shame that the inner chainring is still black and not silver.

I thought the same. The 1x chainring isn't full silver either for some reason.

Obviously Dario isn't, but Pegoretti is offering a disc brake bike now. So this could be used on that. Which is what I was talking about.

I know. I knew him and still see his brother Gianni occasionally. I was the first person to “stock” Pegoretti frames in London 20 years ago.

I’ve been riding Pegoretti continuously for all that time, albeit they’re now Pegoretti Evoluzione aka De Anima!

That said, I doubt Pegoretti will be building anything with this GRX group anytime soon. They are still much more aligned with Campag.

From what I’ve been told from certain manufacturers, it’s gonna be end of 2023 or early 2024.
Will be 12 speed, wireless and will use microspline cassette.

Dang. I was really hoping they'd do a 13 speed eKar style (but "wired-less") system.

From what I was told by Shimano, Microspline may only be for 1x systems that use 12 speed MTB cassettes. The 2x systems will most likely use road cassettes from 7100 & 8100 so will fit HG splined bodies.

Are we heading for a GRX familiy like?
800 wireless 12sp - "ultegra"
600 wireless 12sp - "105"
400 mech 11sp - Tiagra
