There is only 1 cassette at the back with no rear derailleur, and the tensioner is located at the front and higher from the ground, giving the drivetrain a rather unique appearance. This is because this frame is installed with a gearbox system.
The 3T Strada turned heads in 2017 when it first launched. Marketed as the world’s first 1x aero bike, it’s aerodynamically – optimised frame shape, hydraulic disc brakes, wide tires and tight clearances lent itself to a polarising view of opinions.
The perfect race bike should be a combination of good handling, comfortable stable riding, aerodynamics, lightweight, fits well, looks good, and functional. And Specialized has managed to almost reach that with their new Venge.
