- The future?
not sure about that monstrosity but until gearbox/beltdrives get sorted this is the futurePosted 6 years ago
Or a possible distopian future?
I bet that could have been made far more efficiently and cost effectively Today and not in the ‘Future’…
Instead its some twatty Industrial designer’s wet dream rather than a genuine attempt at making more accesible, sustainable transport for the masses, a wasted opportunity…
Her arse is alright, can’t see why you lot are getting quite so worked up though…Posted 6 years ago
That 9 tooth cassette thing is more interesting.
Wonder how much a new cassette costs? On that hope thing, the top few alu sprockets should be replaceable on their own I reckon.
Would be lovely for my Patriot, I could run double and bash and still have a good range of gears. Also good for XC racing because of fewer front shifts…Posted 6 years ago
Chain lines on 1×10 will be much the same as 1×9 possibly marginally better (same width cassette, slightly narrower chain)…Posted 6 years ago
More of it will come down to crank Qfactor and chain guidance, all of which can be brought to the current “middle” ring position or slightly inboard without too much fuss…
Well 1×9 works, I’ve got it on one of my own bikes, there’s fair few other people I’m sure who do as well in one form or another…
On 3 chainring setups I tended to use the whole Cassette with the Middle ring 90% of the time anyway and that was back when I had 11-28t Cassettes, I’m not sure where you think this chainline issue comes from on 1×9 drivetrains? you might get a little rubbing on a chain device but that’s not the same as a “Bad” chainline.
You could have 1×7 if you wanted, I think theres a few wider range 7spd cassettes available still (11-30 or 11-32 I think), in fact you’ve insprired me, I might look into doing just that on one of my bikes…
It’s all relative of course these days I wouldn’t dream of lugging about 3 chainrings when one or two serves all my… needs but, horses for courses as they say…Posted 6 years ago
