Teaser Shot of New Black Sram Red Rear Derailleur

While Tyler is out in Santa Cruz checking out what’s to come from Avid in the way of brakes, this abstract shot was just leaked on Twitter. Unfortunately, there is no information included with the shot, just “Rumor has it there will be something new from SRAM for the 2011 race bikes…”

More on this as soon as we have it, so stay tuned!

*UPDATE* Full Derailleur shot after the break!

I’ll bet it’s their new product line, SRAM Fred. Designed to take sidewalk/bike-path racers to the next level of performance. And it only comes in a triple. There will also be a recumbent-specific version available, too.

Looks revolutionary!

I bet you don’t know what SRAM does mean in Polish language. It means “I’m shitting” and this is NOT a joke. But what I see here is not a revolutionary engineering. It’s just another SRAM.

I was more excited at the latest Sunrace offerings.

I like the Damocles its bolted to

I’m going to hope that there is more than just making the metal part carbon. Maybe on the front of the drivetrain is the electric box we’ve all been waiting for that is pulling this derailleur.

SRAM RED….. in black

I’m not feeling very teased.

Looks like a tour edition with the regular cage on the bottom. What’s so special?

Almost looks as good as my black Rival derailleur.
