@shredteds: Chainrings take way more rock strikes than derailleurs, and they get closer to the ground as suspension compresses, unlike derailleurs, hence why chainrings have bash guards derailleurs don't, it doesnt matter if its unsprung, or moving laterally when it's smashed to bits.

Except in the future that stupid idler tensioner wouldn't exist, because it basically defeats half the point of removing the derailleur.

@Tmackstab: The fact that you need to self-pedal to/from/up the trail to do that many laps is whats known as "self-regulating" if you can do 4 laps under your own steam, go for it.

You're now doing 4 laps instead of 1, therefore 4x the traffic, 4x the wear and tear, and 4x the maintenance required to keep them operational, not to mention the people that would likely be riding the trails would likely be newer/less skilled riders who would damage the trails more than most experienced riders.

I got as far as the Greg Callahan comment, the difference with e-bikes is that you're putting Callahan power into the hands of morons, backcountry trails that should only see the top end of the rider demographic using, because they have the skills and fitness required to get them there will now see every mom, dad and little Johnny doing laps on, that's NOT sustainable. Then theres the issue of what happens when some fat mess isn't able to get themselves home from the backcountry when their battery goes flat and they realize they are in over their head r.e fitness or skill level?

Spotted: Radon's Revised Slide 160 Carbon
I hope it's an unrideable proto, simply because I can't believe it's being clamped in a stand like that.....
