Shimano's New XT Di2 Drivetrain Can Shift Automatically & While Coasting, But Only For eBikes
@gnarlysipes: Really, electric motors don't need transmissions - they can deliver 100% torque at zero RPM and across a generous speed range. It doesn't make sense to have a derailleur or a gearbox on an ebike if one considers that the pedal assist function could be assisting the motor, which in turn could drive the rear wheel at the hub, or with a single belt at any speed or torque value that corresponded to the rider's inputs. Electronic controls weigh nearly nothing and the motor is already part of the cost. Why pay SRAM and Shimano for overpriced, complicated components that are only necessary for actual bicycles?

The Story of Mountain Biking’s Most Interesting Man: Richard Cunningham - A Pinkbike Podcast Special
@mikelevy, @Sscottt: I get that question often. When vehicles designed for a very narrow range of performance approach the pinnacle of their evolution, physics dictates their most efficient shape. That's why commercial airliners all look like Boeing 767s and F1 cars look like deep-ocean fish. In a funny way, that's where we are with mountain bike design. "Funny," because bike brands are not courageous enough to abandon the double diamond profile that has defined the bicycle since the invention of the safety bike in the 1800s. So, the true definition of the present mountain bike is: "The near perfection of an off road bicycle within the confines of a double diamond frame." Or, "looks like a Session." Carbon fiber has given us the wings to abandon that premise. Additive manufacturing could also play a role. That's where I would begin.

HA! Suffered the same Mavic moment in tall grass, miles away from the trailhead. Easter egg hunt for tiny bits.
