Japan unveils new Olympic track bike with left-sided drivetrain

The Japanese national cycling team has lifted the lid on the new track bike it has developed for this summer’s Paris Olympics, revealing an unusual left-sided drivetrain. 

The V-Izu TCM-2, made by Japanese carbon manufacturer Toray, was unveiled over the weekend at the Japan Track Cup competition in Tokyo. It had previously been spotted at last August’s UCI World Championships in Glasgow, where it was ridden for homologation ahead of the Games.
