Derailleur vs Gearbox: Nicolai Ion 16 vs Ion GPI - Review
@BDKR: I do agree with that, there should certainly have been a portion of the test on a downhill only course to see how much difference that sprung vs unsprung weight makes but it would be better to have had downhill, up and down rolling trail and climbing only trails tested to see what the systems were like in different conditions. You wouldn't put the wide range cassette or the wide range gearbox on a DH bike so a lot of what is said about both systems doesn't really apply to DH specific rigs. Particularly when it comes to the increased ground clearance and the weight differences.

Derailleur vs Gearbox: Nicolai Ion 16 vs Ion GPI - Review
@joelsman: Half the arguments I have seen for gearboxes involve the ability to run a belt and reduce maintenance though. This seems like the right way to go to get a test of how people would actually use them.

Derailleur vs Gearbox: Nicolai Ion 16 vs Ion GPI - Review
@Bluefire: Derailleur design prevents you adding a multi speed front to the 1 x specific systems. The shift on the front would pull the top jockey wheel towards or away from the cassette and mess up your shifting completely. There would also not be enough derailleur capacity.

Derailleur vs Gearbox: Nicolai Ion 16 vs Ion GPI - Review
What is the point of testing a drivetrain on a trail with no pedalling at all? Why not take all of the drivetrain components off the bike and have the lightest, quietest possible bike? Its like testing brakes on a trail where it is all uphill. It is cool that derailleurs and gearboxes are both getting better and people are having more options to vote with their wallets, we will see how the whole thing goes. My next bike will have derailleurs but who knows about the bike after that?

2017 Norco Sight Carbon - First Look
Just like you don't have to buy a top of the line Ferrari to get to work, you don't have to buy a carbon superbike to have fun mountain biking. Don't let money or gear envy stop you having fun. A complete bike that costs half of that frame only price will get the job done. Will it be as good? Probably not. Will it be fun? Yes, of course it will, unless you spend your time worrying about money.
