Robot Bike Co R160 - First Look
@Rasterman: "I wouldn't buy it over an even more expensive carbon frame, because I believe they look better." Yeah, who cares about custom geo, weight, stiffness, suspension design.

@vinay: Alfine hub just needs to be made slightly narrower(it's just changing nuts, nothing major) and it'd be able to be used as a gearbox like Zerode do, but in an AM frame with narrower BB. Would be easy for manufacturers to use, and cheap to replace(about the same price as an XTR mech but much much more reliable and chain and sprockets would also last several times longer, so would work out cheaper than living with the cheapest deraileur drivetrain.

@uphill-blues: Getting up a hill in too high a gear uses different muscle groups to spinning up in a lower gear. Just saying. Walking/pushing uses different muscles again. I'm ripped with those muscles ;-)

@davemud: Offset chain stay on drive side. They'l milk this before having to do gearboxes.

@xeren: There's a 9 speed Pinion with quite a wide range.

@Lahar72: I hope Zerode don't open the door to a possible bias review by a reviewer payed by the competition. People are just going to have to work it out for themselves unfortunately. There was a Lahar reviewed years ago by a magazine here in Oz. They put it in a group shoot out against the distributors wishes. The other bikes all beat it, the other bikes all had massive advertisments in the magazine. Basicly an infomertail. The Lahar is still ahead of most bikes and it's what, ten years old. Press fit BB, same size BB bearings as headset, gearbox, carbon, current geo now ten years ago, and many other little great ideas. The Lahar is definitly a better bike than a Mongoose or Giant of the time, it was tested against.

@taquitos: Perhaps one day you'll get to eperience all the bennefits of a gearbpx and see they save energy compared to some lab tests suggestions. and even if they still don't, the amount of lost energy is still less than stated.

@taquitos: I don't notice any sluggishness with my Pinion. Keep flogging your dead horse mate. ride a gearbox for six months, then come forward with an experienced debate.

@Raffe: yeah, people don't get how bad mechs are because it's all they know. They're used to putting up with poor shifting, having to power hard to soft pedal, putting up with being in not quite the right gear, not quite well tuned gears, keeping their mech away from rocks, less chain ring clearance, less noise, less chance of failure, less maintenance, etc etc.
