Electronic Shifting Expands to TT Bikes

Ah, the pace of electronic upgrades. Once reserved to mobile phones and computers (more features! Faster processor!), the same inexorable and rapid improvements are now coming to a bike near you.

Witness Campagnolo's release of new time-trial-specific fittings for the new EPS system (which will also work with triathlon bikes). Only six months after EPS dropped on the world, and it's already expanding.

We'll almost certainly be watching riders this year in the European pro peloton effortlessly shifting during time trials--the greatest thing to come to cycling until ... The next thing.
