Pinkbike Poll: Which Major Component is the Least Evolved Part of a Mountain Bike?
@Ryanrobinson1984: It's called single speed. Constant cadence is over rated "grinding and spinning" is where it's at :)

@rokboy: and we all know UK mud is muddier than anyone elses mud ;p I run a no frills 1x10 because its cheap to replace every year. Running a £12 NW ebay chainring.

@kc358: I wonder how many people commenting here have actually ridden a Pinion of Effigear? You also forgot the rigid to full suspension revolution. Gearboxes will happen, maybe not for XC race bikes but for everyone else.

@radrider: I think S and S have developed them already but haven't released them. Shimano has the Alfine. Stick it in a box and its a gearbox. SRAM had the Sachs IGH so similar to Shimano. The reason they don't release them is they are still making plenty of coin of mechs, cassettes and chains. Typically I replace my cassette, chainring and chain every season. Plus mechs break. This all adds up to a healthy amount of coin for little input. Gearboxes on the other hand last for a very long time and need very little maintenance. I am sure once S+S are on board we will have some great efficient light gearboxes.

@radrider: I don't think S+S have pushed deraillers rather than not releasing the gearboxes they have probably already developed. As you say they have invested heavily in deraillers and its easy to add another cog to the cassette and work with what they have. Gearboxes throw all that out the window and it's not worth it for such a small market (high end mtb).

@mikecawsey: Thinking about it mtb gearbox as still in their infancy. I don't see one bad review killing the idea. The interesting part will be how the suspension is affected by the lack of weight. Gearbox efficiency and weight are things that will probably get better with time. For me a gearbox is the right solution for a mountain bike. Where as a mech and cassette are the right solution for a road bike.
