XX with a twist



Still no official date about the release of a 10 speed XX Grip Shift but the pictures look closer to the real deal. Jaroslav Kulhavy already won the World Championships with the prototypes so we should see them sometimes in 2012...

Good news, I don't like triggers. Grip Shifts shift much faster, provide better, more direct feel/feedback, like your hand is physically connected to the derailleurs, they're also lighter, much simpler mechanically speaking, give some trim-ability for the front (and big plus to use the whole 10 cogs with the big ring) and should be cheaper than XX triggers. It's a win-win-win-win-win-win situation!
