I'm guessing at $495 RRP it will end up costing 8-10k for the groupset

I prefer the non-phallic looking crankset.

"This is the range of Eagle. The range to reach. To realize. A range beyond limitation or complexity. Beyond what’s been done before. A range where fearless dedication meets relentless engineering. Where silent precision meets trouble-free reliability. Where simplicity matches strength."

No. SRAM's, and particularly this marketing video is just pathetic.

That was looking pretty decent on the costs until you hit the £170 for the cassette. I've been looking at the 10sp GX and the 11sp GX and the Eagle to 11 jump is not that much at all. 

 

Still, might wait for the flood of 11sp clearance groupsets and grab one of those!

When the first line of the article is a load of marketing crap what do you expect. I didn't even read the rest.
SRAM brought to you by the makers of powerband bracelets
