    I read others, last week. Nothing new really. Almost a ringer for the Schlumpf Innovations Mountain Drive; although it uses the nice touch of ISCG anti-rotation instead of the teeth or anchor-arm of the Schlumpf.

    Not detracting from them - - I love derailleur-less innovations and find the possibilities exciting. I did read rumors that SRAM developed it in conjuction with 'an unnamed German concern,' which I wonder may have been Schlumpf after all? Hmmmm . . . .

    That's interesting. This is all news to me, so I thought it was a pretty cool idea. This has been done before though?

    Do you think with the SRAM name this might be able to become more of an OE spec?

    Yeah, as dMinor noted, Schlumpf has had this for a while, but it's been expensive. I think of it as neat but not sure I'd dish out the money for this over a traditional setup, but then again I am a XC guy so can't really benefit from a hidden-double-on-a-chain-guide rig.

    Might become OE spec on high end bikes. The thing is expensive. Costs more then a good crankset, front derailer, front shifter, and a chain guide. Pretty trick though. In my opinion not really worth the cost.

    I'd run that thing with a single cog in the rear.

    A two-speed singlespeed!!

    ^I already read the whole issue it's pretty awesome, now I really need to get out to pisgah.

    They look really interesting and I may just have to get them to replace my stylos, or I could save that money for a new session 88.

    Wow, that is clever! I'm studying to be a mechanical engineer... and lucky me. SRAM headquarters is Chicago! Man would I love to work for them...

    A couple of friends tried it at Crankworx last week...they said it was awesome. And one of them is a gear ***** so he'll have it on his bike for next year.

    At around $600 for either the SRAM or the Schlumf, I think I'd be hard-pressed to spend money like that to get rid of a front derailleur. I think I'd just go to an Envy Double-E2 if I wanted a second ring on my DH/FR rig.

    I agree. For that matter, for $600 I could see myself getting some single-speed city bike for fast commuting.

    Yah, but for a sissy Kansas girl like myself...it would be a way to have the simplicity of a killa SS with a cheater for climbing.

    Sure... but if you're going to shell out that kind of money, its better to get a Rohloff IGH. Expensive but well made with 14 speeds!
