Miche and Stronglight 2007
Interesting developments in Europe this year.
It looks like they are both moving away from square tapers. I was almost expecting one of them to borrow Campagnolo's design, but that clearly hasn't happened.
Instead, Miche have Evo Max
The other new products I saw on that sight were Supertype carbon brakes and Performance v-brakes.
Stronglight have Activ Link. Given that it features on cranksets from the top to the bottom, including the Impact (which is made from Sugino XD blanks and then finished by Stronglight), I bet it has something to do with Sugino's new Direct Drive.
Anyway, I thought these might be of interest to you lot. It's nice to have some variety in bike parts after all
Hot off the press,
Il restyling del gruppo Primato ha contribuito alla realizzazione della nuova guarnitura Primato Carbon evo max con struttura in lega leggera rivestita di fibra di carbonio per aumentare la rigiditÓ alle flessioni. Quasi scontato, seguendo le linee guida del mercato, il giro bulloni da 110 mm, quello delle compact. La combinazione degli ingranaggi Ŕ 34-50, in ergal 7075 lavorati a Cnc e anodizzati. Disponibili, comunque, le corone a 39, 52 e 53 denti.
The new products are also on www.miche.it
The sugino all polished Al cranksets look really nice. Any idea of the MSRP's?
