Bike Biz is reporting that SRAM has released their first 24-speed group designed especially for the Trekking crowd. With thumb-only operation on the triggers, it uses the normal 1:1 SRAM actuation and technology similar to it’s mountain groups, but (from appearances) designed for light use on casual touring bikes.

There’s no official info on SRAM’s site yet, so we’ll update when we get better info and hopefully a better photo.

What do you think?
