A box of drivetrain components has just landed, from across the pond from the goats at Gevenalle.
Using a multiple hit combo of thinking different and engineering magic the guys at Gevenalle offer a simple shifting solution unlike other mainstream options from the bigger brands.
Taking existing components and combining with parts designed and made in Portland USA, Gevenalle produce Shifters, front and rear derailleurs, cassettes and cassette spacers…all tweaked and improved for cycloross use and also suited to allroad bikes/mixed surface drop bar bicycle riding.
GEVENALLE CX2 shifters (double front & 10speed rear) $189/£118.03
GEVENALLE front derailleur (braze on) $49/£30.60
GEVENALLE BURD rear derailleur (with ultegra pulleys) $69/£43.09
GEVENALLE HOUP cassette spacer & lockring (10speed) $20/£12.49
And that is what I am going to do…fit the parts to my bike and ride back and forth over the hills to and fro’ work, splashing through puddles, long rides on this and that, here and there and general hooning around on mixed terrain…and a race or two.
