how much longer will rear and front der. be in use, till its replaced by something more efficient, that shifts better under even under the most extreme conditions, how about instant engagement?
what do you guys think will be the next move in cycling. i think Rohloff is a good example - it has a few kinks to be worked out needs to be lightened up, but from all the reviews i have read, and the people i know who have the hub, they say the system is bomb proof. but i am not talking about the hub, there is a modified version that goes in the center of the frame; thus taking the weight off the rear hub and putting it in the center of the bike.

could this system work for road cycling? i think even now with the extra weight of the Rohloff hub, we can still come in at UCI weight of 15 -15.5 lbs.
here is a pic of a bike that uses the system, it is not a road bike, but just so you get the picture.
What does everyone think, any
does anyone think this could work for a road bike? more info for anyone intrested http://www.g-boxx.org/
