The biggest news at Lifecycle since Andrew lowered the mini truck is the arrival of the new SRAM Force 10 speed road groupset.
The much anticipated groupset from the American component manufacturer is no third rate option behind Dura-Ace and Record but a genuine attempt to beat the big names at their own game.
After all the hype circulating on the internet it is nice to finally get this gear in our hands. The finish on all the parts is top notch and the carbon fibre deraileur cage and brake levers are a nice touch. The shifter/ brake combo fits naturally in the hand with the levers sweeping out to meet your fingers. The shifter is a single lever controling both up and down shifts using the new SRAM double tap system.

There aren't a lot of these SRAM Force groupsets about so make sure you get in quick to check it out before Andrew takes it home in the mini truck.
