You like to climb long mountain passes, or your local hill, but don't want clumsy triple cranks on your bike?
With the first 11-32 cassette for the road, and our new SRAM Apex compact crankset, you will have a wider gear range than the most popular triple combinations. A wider gear ratio means you can climb and descend more efficiently. You also get all of our unmatched technical advantages like Zero-loss, reach-adjust, and DoubleTap shifting. SRAM Apex, wherever the road takes you.
Built to be stiff and aerodynamic, the 100 transfers your power to the road while you slice through the air. Made with a layup of high modulus carbon and intermediate modulus carbon, the frame is lightweight and strong. Keeping with the Tri standard, we run a GXP bottom bracket inside of the stiff, oversized shell. The new 100 keeps the same, time tested geometry, that has proven itself year after year, on an international stage.
The race against the clock can not be won with willpower alone. The Veloce 100 uses wing-like tubing to direct air flow around the bike, minimizing turbulence. The seattube features a cutout that allows the rear wheel to tuck in behind it, greatly reducing drag.
Giga X Pipe External Bottom Bracket Bearing Assembly. While other systems rely on side loading the bearings to eliminate play, which causes premature bearing wear, the GXP system is different. The GXP system captures the left side bearing between the spindle and the left crankarm while allowing the drive-side bearing to float axially on the spindle, thereby eliminating the necessity to side-load bearings during adjustment. The simplicity of installation is refined: once it is tightened to the proper specifications you are ready to roll with a worry free BB. The GXP system uses two bicycle specific cartridge bearings and eight seals for a smooth and long lasting ride.-SRAM

Right now I don’t know of a better price point from a domestic brand.
