If you have been considering a digital drive train and you own a bike that was made before digital drive trains came out, this could be your solution. The super clean, wireless digital shifting system from SRAM, not only works well, but it keeps you from having to run all of those messy cables on the outside of your frame.
The new Bianchi Allroad is a fun bike for every surface of road. If you are looking to get into a disc brake road bike, that has clearance for fat tires and fenders and it needs to be less than $2000, this is it.
Custom titanium is always fun to build, but this time we got to play with the finish a bit. We also wanted to give the customer a really clean drive train to enhance the look of the bead blasted stripes on his frame.The SRAM Force 1X11 drive train not only delivered the desired look, but it kept the weight of the Mosaic down to 16.5 pounds! We also chose Martindale hand bulit alloy wheels and Challenge 27mm open tubular tire to keep this bike as smooth as possible.

Let's face it, modern road bike drive trains work great, but most people still don't understand how to shift from the big ring to the little ring. Never mind shifting, what is trim, and why can't I ride in the big ring in the front and the big ring in the back? Mountain bikes starting moving towards 1X drive trains a few years ago and now we are seeing it on the road. SRAM has introduced the Force 1X group and this summer a yet to be named entry level 1X road group will be available. We have been test riding the Force group for a while now, and we are very impressed.
