Just curious. 🤔
Seems like ‘Supercompact’ and 1x are the hot new-ish entrants, with Compact and Mid-Compact the established order… but I could be behind the curve.

Okay, Shimano has now officially announced 12-speed road, bringing it into line with SRAM and Campy. Now all of the Big Three ‘go to 12’, for road at least (& Campy goes to 13, with gravel/Ekar). ⚙
Question is now, “When does it end?”.
Or CAN it even end, given that,
