Rouleur Tech Podcast - What's New in Drivetrains?

The bicycle drivetrain has remained true to its roots for over a century — until now. Dramatic departures from the derailleur-based chain drive system have cropped up in recent years, perhaps offering a peek at what the future holds for bicycle development. Classified Cycling CTO Roëll van Druten reveals how the Powershift system allows front derailleur-type shifts without a front derailleur.
