Truvativ is really on to something here.....

One is greater than two. The planetary gear mechanism at the hart of Truvativ’s new front transmission works like a single chainring with the strengths of the traditional two-ring system — and none of the weaknesses. There are two gears: 1:1 and Overdrive. In 1:1, everything is locked and spinning together. Turn the pedal once and the chainring goes around once. In Overdrive, the ratio is approximately 1:1.6. Turn the pedal once and the chainring goes around about 1.6 times.

One of the most talented riders on the planet, Danny Macaskill.

If you have not seen any of his videos you have been missing out. Danny is incredibly devoted to his craft and his talent and work ethic are unsurpassed. He is a joy and an inspiration to watch. On top of all of that, he is one helluva good guy. Watch the magic....

When you are done with this one just search on YouTube for his other videos. You will be amazed.

Did you know that the Shimano XT group is 30 years old??

The Shimano XT group has been the work horse in the Shimano line for a long time for good reason. It always works and it looks as if it is getting better (if you like 10 speed). The guys at have some new details.
