New SRAM groupo

image

Looks like SRAM  is releasing a budget level groupo that I’m sure will blow tiagra and even 105 out of the water. With a savings of 264 grams (9+ ounces).  Looks like a great option for updating a commuter rig or an option for a cross bike for some folks. With the large range 11-32 cassette that is offered, this would be good for a touring bike, or another option for people already running SRAM.

I hope to get my mitts on these soon enough. It is supposed to be released in April, but I have a sinking feeling that we will see these sooner than that, even if they are not for sale.  Their name on this is SRAM Apex and they are using the tag of Wifli (wider faster lighter) which with the claims they have made seems like a great moniker.
