A bike I want. Manufactures take note.
I'm after a drop bar bike with discs and hub gears. Hydraulic discs, and a wide range of gears. Not for touring, but for my usual use, that is a couple of sportives a year, a trip to the mountains of Europe, and thrashing about the lanes where I live. Why can't I buy one?
I understand that at the moment no bike manu is making hydraulic drop levers, but why not? I also realise that UCI regs dont permit discs at the moment, but how long will this last? Already in CX....
Anyone have an 11 speed alfine? What ratios does is cover? I like the clean likes and reliability hubs offer, but my budget doesn't stretch to a rolhoff.
So, bike makers, take note and get to work! Please.
