While we were out in Vicenza having a go on the new EPS groupset we also had the opportunity to talk to Flavio Cracco, the engineer who's been at the helm of the project. And we got him to show us round the nuts and bolts of the electronic drivetrain. So if you want to know which bit does what, this is the vid to watch - if anyone should know, it's him...
As well as giving us an overview of the way the EPS gears work, Flavio also showed us the process for setting up the gears and how to adjust them mid-ride, both of which are very simple processes accessible from the Ergo levers.
Anyway, Flavio's got plenty to say so we'll hand over to him. Enjoy!
