BOTM: ORANGE IS BACK - part 3
Andy Kessler - 23-Aug-2019
orange is back and after 2 videos
its now time for the beauty shots of this months WI.DE.
We have been waiting so long for that GRX group and honestly it was worth the wait. It should be available in most markets by September after a delay of many months caused by a big fire in Shimano's production facility.
As mentioned in the video this setup with the 11-46 cassette officially does not work. I have not made 1000 miles on it so far but soon will as I will build a winter commuter with it and should be able to tell you more by end of this year...
I have made a couple of 1000km on the Cane Creek seat post on another bike and once you have found your "correct elastomer" the seatpost works very well. I have taken a pretty hard elastomer as I have the "tire" for the small bumps and then the suspension seatpost only for the big ones and this combination is perfect for me.
Here is the gallery:
