Vosper: Shimano’s new gearbox + e-bikes = the future of just about everything

Even as smart and well thought-through as it clearly is, the true significance of Shimano’s new gearbox patent in the e-bike era is its potential to redefine how disruptive new technologies can succeed in the bicycle business. And that has huge implications for the health and long-term direction of the industry itself. Shifting the shifting paradigm The bike boom of the 1970’s was created and defined by a disruptive product technology: the drop-bar racing-style bicycle, and more importantly, by its derailleur drivetrain. Some number of chainrings up front, some number of cogs on a freewheel in the rear, and the whole system enabled by one or more increasingly sophisticated derailleurs to move the chain around.

Almost as an afterthought, it also created the enthusiast-driven market ...

Stu Bowers Tuesday, November 12, 2019 - 14:00 An electric version of its timeless road bike, Cannondale claims to have retained its leading race performance £3,599 - £7,999 Cannondale has today announced the launch of a new Cannondale SuperSix EVO Neo; an electric-assist version of its timeless road racing machine. It’s a significant step for Cannondale to bring e-bike technology into its top-flight race bike and very telling of how this sector of the market is rapidly progressing, especially given that Cannondale already has the Synapse Neo e-road bike in its stable.
