Wanted a mountain bike with sealed drive so I built my own, this in ment modifing the frame and redesigning the gearing mechanism

 this has real potential. obviously at the moment it is fairly damn chunky, but if that could be refined a little then this could be interesting. only downside is added unsprung weight and un-even side to side weight distibution.

 Thanks for coments Less unsprung weight than standard rear mech as can run with less chain than standard mech So the added sealed casing weight less than removed weight Yes does need refined a bit

Do you know any frame builders that would be interested?
