 I think it's about time that bike companies start investing more time into developing gearbox technology that's compact enough to be practical and and that's at a competitive weight point. The only concerns I have are reliability and ease of maintenance but neither of these factors can be resolved unless more time and money is invested from major brands such as Sram and Shimano. I don't however think that gear boxes will completely wipe out the traditional Derailleur and cassette system, but for riding genres such as downhill and gravity enduro I think this really makes sense.

 Shimanos Alfine, and the Rohloff are already ridiculously reliable and low maintenance. Hopefully these and the Pinion will match their reliability. Way less maintenance and unreliability of a derailleur set up is definite.

 About the same weight as a conventional drivetrain with none of the hassles, and being able to shift any time. Less unsprung weight, less maintenance, less to go wrong, win win win. Release the 160mm 650b Enduro bike Cavalerie, can't wait.
