  • Gevenalle BURD Front Derailleur

    BURD – Blatantly Upgraded and Rebranded Derailleur. Sounds good to me. The folks at Gevenalle (formerly RetroShift) have released their latest addition to their cyclocross-specific grouppo: the BURD Front Derailleur. It’s a short cage derailleur to compliment the CX 1 and CX2 drivetrain system. Pair this up with the BURD rear derailleur and CX shifters and you’ve almost got yourself a fully ‘cross-specific group.

    The BURD front goes for $49 and comes with Gevenalle’s crash rebuild service which means for a mere $20 (including shipping), you can be back up and running should you thrash a little too hard and destroy a derailleur.

    If I raced ‘cross, I’d undoubtedly be destroying gear and definitely give these guys a look; if for nothing more than the $20 crash replacement deal. Good stuff, guys!


  • Cyclocross Component Specialist Retroshift Re-Brands as Gevenalle

    Some exiting news from the folks formerly known as Retroshift:
    Cyclocross component maker Retroshift is changing it’s name and face to Gevenalle, and introducing an expanded and updated product line. Gevenalle, derived from two dutch words and translates to “Give All” reflecting the brands commitment to creating innovative and performance enhancing shifting solutions for cyclocross. The name change comes as the brand launches Hydraulic Shift Levers and Cassette Adapters both designed to address the specific needs of shifting in the mud and dirt. All Gevenalle products undergo testing in a race atmosphere before being brought to market.

    “Gevenalle products are the result of a love for cyclocross and desire to offer innovative and problem solving solutions for the sport that road components don’t quite meet. Our products are geared toward the cross racer looking to improve his/her performance with race parts built to better meet their requirements. “We are offering affordable, after market components that better meet the requirements of the muddy carnage we call cyclocross”. -Adam Clement (Founder of Gevenalle).
