Gevenalle creates component solutions that address many of the typical equipment shortfalls that have limited cyclocross racers for decades. Their rear BURD (Blatantly Upgraded Rebranded Derailleur) takes a tough, no-nonsense road derailleur and makes it 'cross-ready. To do this, the "goats" at Gevenalle disassemble each derailleur and adjust the chain tension spring to deliver 25% more force, keeping your chain planted when the course turns to muddy, rutted chop. Then, they repack the derailleurs with premium Phil Wood grease and install upgraded pulleys for long-lasting smooth service in rough conditions. The result is a precise derailleur that performs better and lasts longer on the cyclocross circuit than regular road derailleurs.
