  • llos25

    A number of riders have gone back to using mechanical groupsets in 2016 true or false.

  • MrHaematocrit

    Think you will find Quickstep are using Roval wheels at least on the Vias, think the TT wheels are Vision as Roval do not have a disk wheel, Think they are also using FSA cranks as well as the chainrings

  • that’s right too! 😉

  • philip norton

    In all cases there are 2 answers:
    1.More than I can afford (even if I wish I could…)
    2.More than my modest level needs or desreves 😉

  • it would be interesting to compare the prices (if/when available for us)
