To me, this is like electric or hydraulic shifters: Even if you work out all the bugs and get them working wonderfully, how much better can they be than a modern derailleur, or in this case a modern chain drive? It's quiet, efficient, easy to work on, shifts beautifully and doesn't cost much. My road bikes are nothing special--105-level components, mostly, with XT on the Atlantis--but I wouldn't pay a dime for them to work better than they do. They're already as good as I need or want them to be.
