Black SRAM Red Groupset - It is kind of fun to have Zipp and SRAM with a hundred plus employees on Indy’s northwest side.  Especially when that means the staff of Bicycle Garage Indy can get a look at cool new stuff the day it is announced. So over lunch today, our friendly neighborhood Zipp & SRAM rep stopped by the with the new Black SRAM Red groupset.

From the SRAM press release (link):

The groupset includes shifters, rear and front derailleurs, brakes, cassette (same as LTE, w/11-28 option), crankset with black anodized rings, ceramic bottom bracket and chain.Features and benefits stay the same as the original SRAM RED, as it remains the world’s lightest gruppo, approaching 1800 grams in the BB30 version.
