Good Ideas Executed Poorly - Opinion
@markg1150: I think I am with you on that one. I haven't been on 2x since the late 90s (when chain guides came out and I could ditch the front mech). I would rather run out of big gears and freewheel down a hill than put a front mech back on. The only reason I would put one back on would be if I were bike packing and really needed the low gears. But saying that I would just get a smaller ring up front and be done with it. Even though we don't have mountain in the south east there are still some punchy climbs that I can make it up on 1x. Any steeper and I will walk.

@woofer2609: allegedly it is 40-50g heavier than a Sunrace. Probably has better shifting tho.

@aljoburr: I really like the mech in a box idea. It's simple and works. I though Honda would have the patent on it?

@BenPea: yeah there is a balance. I find the same. Take it too easy and you make silly mistakes and get hurt. Push to hard when you are tired and you have to drive 16 hours back from the Morzine to UK the next day with a black bruise the size of a dinner plate on your hip.

@hirvi: with a cassettes you can power thru a shift altho your chain wont like it. Don't Effigear do a thumb shifter for their gearbox? The other alternative is electronic shifting which would be cool. I am sure there are solutions.
