10sp XTR

Well, I was waiting for it, and now Shimano just announced it a couple hours ago.

New XTR with 10sp double and triple cranks, new hydraulic brakes, and a new tubeless wheel


p> It looks like Shimano will pursue both 2x10 drivetrains for XC and 3x10 for “trail” riding. The new crank design seems understated compared to previous offerings. Cassettes will be in either 11-34 or 11-36 offerings, with an updated “Shadow-type” rear derailleur. Pretty hot.

Bicycle-Powered Parade Float

Just riding along, a ride I do along the i-90 lid, and there was Haulin’ Colin, his peeps from Madison Market, and the Bicycle-Powered Parade Float. I stopped and they did a quick demo:

I’m sure it was well received for Seattle’s Pride Parade.

This is filed under, crazy shit I see on the bike, along with just riding along, and sometimes I wonder if it’s the blog that moves me or the other way around.

There’s always a post to write from every ride I do.

Bikes at Twitter HQ
