And this is what it looks like:

http://www.cyclingnews.com/tech.php?id= ... nolo_jun08

Rather smart if you ask me, crying out for a nuovo-retro steel frame with plenty of chrome. Standard rims, not these ugly deep section ones that are so popular with youngsters nowadays, all finished off with non-anatomic bars and a Brooks Ti saddle, naturally.

Nice to see the name back too. I lusted after Super Record when I was a kid. 17% price premium over the current 10-sp Record gruppo though! :shock:

Personally I hope the new Chorus retains these general design features but without all the carbon and black ano. for a real classic look.

We must have 11 gears!

( then all the twits who upgrade to it will sell their much-better 8,9 and 10 speed stuff FOR EVEN LESS! )

A-S

abso-bloody-lutely! Keep these 'innovations' coming. I am sure someone needs 11-speed, but it ain't me.

As a heavy rider--300+ pounds--I don't trust the width of the chain. Not to mention that the gruppo will be super expensive. I remember when I thought the jump from five to six gears was a big deal--
