Long time MTBer. I swear I had an account on here from when I was a kid but alas this is it. Been riding/racing since 2001, mostly in Downhill.

I don't think it's ever been confirmed or denied but I think it's VERY unlikely he wasn't wearing one. As far as I know he was cross training on his dirt bike and I would bet my life that he was wearing a lid.

Kindernay Internally Geared Hub - First Look
@TheLongMan: My dad raves about the old 3-speed sturmey archer hubs all the time, The current model of that is just under 1kg, that's more than 3 times the weight of any given rear hub. It's still severely unbalancing for a mountain bike because the weight isn't centred. Great for city bikes though. I still believe that Pinion/Nicolai are on the right track here. Zerode as well as well his trail-bike frame he made... redesign your frame around a small bolt-in gearboxBB. That's the future!

They weigh a ton. It's plain an simple. It completely unbalances your bike so unless you're some long distance flog who never gets airborne or hits trails steeper than a green run it's safe to say it won't be very fun on your bike.

That's pretty much how all gearboxes work.
