Time to go back to your rocking chair on the porch & polish your shotgun I think ...

My commuter runs a 48T front!

Ladies and Gentlemen. We've passed sensible limits some time ago. Hold on for a rough landing and introduction of the next must-have drivetrain solution.

Who is this "our" of which you speak :eh:


I had a dream once when I was a teenager, not long after the first triple chainring mountain bikes were released. I dreamed of a fourth chainring, but weirdly it was mounted inboard of the granny, and was also slightly bigger than the granny. But not as big as the middle ring. So something like a 26-22-32-44 crankset :crazy:

I remember the dream vividly :blush: Pretty sure this will be the next big thing now.

Ever seen an Avanti Black Thunder (the first one from about 1994) with 24 speeds?
