Finally the TT stuff is here!!! And there is budget aluminum versions of the shifters (very slick), and brake levers(also really nice) for the 10spd and 11spd guys, as well as new TT cranksets. This is good news for TT and tri guys.
But for me, the expansion of CX line up is the exciting news. Canti brakes and CX versions of the Bora and Bullet (tubeless ready) wheelsets! And there are still CX cranksets in carbon and alloy for both 10 and 11 spd. And the claimed weight on those cranks is light! I only wish the alloy CX cranks were available in black.
The new Bullet wheels are already sold out from Campy. I heard OEMs snagged a big chunk of them. The rest went to distributors, so they will be out there. I haven't had a chance to get word from Fulrum, who are now headquartered by themselves in FL, if the same fate fell their Red Winds, also available in CX versions.
I like that Athena has added black.
So, you can budget build a 10spd TT or CX bike with Veloce, or 11spd with Athena, in silver or black, and then upgrade to carbon as the budget allows. Hmmmm. Anyone else notice Felt's steel road bike is Athena equipped?
I am not as upset about the new power shift cranks as I was last year as it is clearly an attempt at Campy trying to make it back into the OEM market.
