First Ride: Shimano's Back in the Game With New XT and SLX 12-Speed Groups
Hubs? Especially 157x12? Other then that - just 7 years too late. Good job.

Video: This is the Fastest* Bike in the World
All fine and good, but claiming that motor paced ride is a "fastest bike in the world" is like saying that Evel Knievel was the fastest man in the world, because he got shot out of a cannon. That might be true, technically, but totally misses the point of cycling. Fastest bike in the world is a recumbent raced somewhere in Battle Mountain, Nevada. Last I heard they were doing close to 90mph. With their legs as their sole power source.

Should the Derailleur Die? Zerode's Gearbox-Equipped Taniwha - Review
Gearboxes are like nuclear fusion. They are taking over ever since Rohloff came out with 14 speed unit. So 20 years now, if memory serves me.

Mondraker Dune - Review
@fartymarty: I am fitter then most people I ride with. Killer climbs are not an issue. I ride everything with 34T front and 42T back on a 29er. However I much prefer to have a super short cage, tight ratios and loads of gears when I am not in the mountains, but riding around my house.

Mondraker Dune - Review
@Kiwiplague: You got that right. I have a Mondraker Crafty RR+, which is also 1x only. Before I get accused of being a luddite. I also rode 1x before it was cool all those years ago. That being said. I don't like that 1x forces me to use the bottom and top of the cassette exclusively. I despise being forced to run an extra long mech and I hate that when downhilling I ride at lowest chain tension - so I get tons of noise from the drivetrain. I don't like that I have, effectively, four gears for the flats. And yes. I am going to be mightly annoyed when every manufacturer goes full laziness mode and goes 1x for the entire range. Sure, If you want to ride 1x - go ahead. I'm not judging. However I don't wish to be forcifully tagged along for that.

It's gonna sell for $200, so SRAM will sell it for $200. Why would they do anything else.
