    The electronic internals supposedly are the same, so if the shifting kit is 100g heavier than Force and you have a nice aftermarket crankset, particularly in 1x, becomes a significant £ saving for a small increase in weight.

    Not to say that there are many lighter weight chainsets around for the price.
    Rival crankset is £35 less than 105.

    Long term strategy.

    I have come across sales falling through because one of the married owners cheating on the other with the estate agent on a fake viewing...

    Aero hoods gives me a headache after a few minutes.
    Maybe a welcome distraction from the pain in the legs...

    Alex Richardson of Alpecin Fenix, formerly a stockbroker, cyclist of ridicule, was DQed from Tour of Turkey for using that position in the race.

    Very much a good description of them.

    Really interesting, aerohoods position is similar to hooked pinkie position (on test rider) but I think hooked pinkie position might be more comfortable?

    Also noteworthy that aerohoods is much faster than drops.

    Gotta be really frustrating trying to get into a breakaway in the pro peloton.
    Sagan isn’t going to be easily let out into a breakaway, not really sure how De Gent manages so often (except that he is a watt monster)
