    Looks like they are moving the concept forward and closer to production. Though, I cannot imagine it will be cheap nor frame manufacturers being quick to adopt.

    Oh, I can. I'd love to test ride that and see how it all works from a real ride perspective.

    I don’t know that I would ever get something like that, but it would be interesting to try it one time. The only thing I can see that’s a negative is that it adds more gears into the mix, thus causing more friction and resistance. Another thing would be the rear sprocket moving forward and back over a shaft, which seems as if it would also create a bit more resistance. Never having ridden one, these are just guesses, but ....
