First Look: Lal Bikes' Supre Drivetrain Splits The Derailleur In Half Before It Happens On the Trail
This is fantastic innovation, a great take on drivetrain design, bravo! I ride a Zerode, I adapted easily and love the Pinion/Gates belt combo for a bunch of reasons - but this design is a great halfway-house between conventional systems and the pinion (*other gearboxes are available) it looks like it solves real world trails issues and will give an improved platform to riders who want many of the benefits of GB's without riders having to adapt to the ride nuances or are panicked by weight/cost/drag or servicing availability. (Weight/cost/drag arguments are losing credibility as the industry has moved further towards burlier bikes and high pivot idlers and prices are quite ridiculous at the top end now!) Everyone seems to want 1 defining standard to dominate the market killing off all other systems - but given the diverse nature of bikes and riding, why should this ever be the case?! All designs have compromises and none are perfect for ALL applications, innovative bikes are often judged unfairly with this expectation - with reviewers commentating on performance not only as intended by the manufacturer but also for every perceived 'other' application the tester can envisage. There's a reason I wouldn't thank you for swapping my Red AXS off the road bike and Pinion off the Taniwha.. but both systems are fantastic for their application. The traditional derailleur isn't dead coz of this, nor should it be.. but hopefully we'll see less of them spec'd on the robust bikes PBers like to ride hard! I completely see room in the market for this - hopefully frame designers will too.
