Gear Talk / Shimano CUES
« on: March 02, 2023, 03:56:09 pm »
This week, Shimano announced their new drivetrain line called "CUES". It unites their lower-end lines (Deore, Sora, Alivio, etc.), does away with triples, is 9-10-11 speed, has the same pull-ratios and uses the same chain across everything, has 11-45 cassettes to be used with 2x and an 11-50 cassette to be used with 2x.

This was an unexpected announcement and, while no reviews are out yet, the press is very favorable. I am so stinkin' excited about this because my dream of a fully-loaded touring 2x crankset that can be used with an 11-speed cassette is becoming a reality. Drop bar components like brifters are expected later in the year.
