Aprrox. $1000 for Rear cassette ??

Proprietary Hubs ?? Shimano made this sort of mistake previously with their XTR.

No thanks

I'ma gonna go against the grain and say I like it. :cool:
As long as freehubs for other wheels/ hubs become available that is.
I dont see why other hub manufacturers wouldn't be able to make one that fits, Hope or Chris King should have one made up next week... :thumbsup:

I think they point of it will become more apparent in a year or two, when frame manufacturers start building bikes with this groupset in mind, as they say it frees up a lot of space that is normally needed for the front derailleur. :)

A real 11 speed could/should be better than conventional 3x9, 2x10 etc.

Looks like it has answers for a lot of problems.

Hopefully they don't kill it by keeping it proprietary.

I dunno - it'll definitely suit more people than what is available with 1x10, that's for sure - but the single ring brigade is still quite limited in numbers, with most people struggling to accept 2x systems as it is, let alone 1x. IMO the biggest "problem" isn't with the technology or application, but resistance from riders who have always used a triple.

Personally, I'm a fan of 1x9/10 for most riding - it's lighter and simpler, and as dropper posts become more common it free up valuable space on the 'bars.

What do you use for the "1" - a standard middle ring size?

Personally, yes - but by the looks this uses a range of ring sizes to cater to various requirements. I found a 32T or 34T ring and an 11-36T was almost perfect for what I was doing. On a 26er I'd probably use either 36 or 38T to get the same top end though.

Edit: This was a good setup I reckon \/ , although from memory I pussied out and fitted a 32T for karapoti :D

Edit #2: Any opinion I have on the 1x thing is from a more XC oriented point of view - I'm sure others will have different opinions
