Once you've broken away from the pack, you're completely on your own, fighting a seemingly endless battle to stay away. Luckily, the Mourenx 69 Caliper will make you feel like you are reliving the greatest stage in the 1969 Tour de France, when the Cannibal took the lead and never looked back. Eddy Merckx' heroic 214.5km solo ride from Luchon to Mourenx provided the inspiration for the Mourenx 69, a racing bike specially designed for long distances. The heart of this beast is a carbon frame that features one of the highest compliance to stiffness ratios on the market, as well as a slightly longer head tube and shorter top tube for a more forgiving position, which is crucial for long distance races. Accompanying you on your long-distance solo pursuits is Shimano's 11-speed Ultegra Di2 drivetrain, a picture of shifting perfection and fast-rolling Fulcrum wheels. You'll carve descents with confidence thanks to Shimano's lightweight Ultegra brakes. The Prologo saddle will keep you comfortable no matter how long the ride, while an aluminum Deda cockpit keeps the aesthetics slick. Escaping daily life isn't easy, but go ahead and enjoy that long-distance escape, you have the Mourenx 69.

Electronic drivetrain systems deliver excellent shifting, easy set up, and solid battery life. Here are some benefits of electronic shifting that you don't want to miss.

Electronic shifting delivers exceptional performance.

Shifting Performance

Electronic shifting systems use powerful servo motors to rapidly shift the chain. Because microprocessors and sensors constantly monitor every aspect of the system, they shift with surgical precision and without chain rub.

Electronic shifting is customizable.

Customization

Many major systems have customizable shifting. Some have the ability to add remote shifters for common riding positions, and some even allow you to change the functions of the shifting buttons.

Electronic shifting is light on the maintenance.

Dependability

Electronic groupsets are responsive and consistent. There are no cables to stretch and wear out, so you get a flawless shift every time. The added bonus is you'll never have to replace a derailleur cable ever again.
