Yesterday Cavendish, the new British champion, told a SRAM technician the new brakes – which supposedly have enhanced stopping power and better modulation than their mechanic counterparts – saved him from going down in a big spill as the peloton came to the finish in Bastia.

What a cool set up. Anyone know how the weight of the system compares?

Electric shifting and hdraulic braking = maintenance free.

If only they could get the chain to clean itself.

That's wonderful 'product placement' on Cav's part - regardless of whether or not all that braking power is really needed to optimize those few square inches of tire contact area.....
