Did they really have to plaster even the derailleur with huge white logos?

Why the negative attitude Bob? The people want 13 speeds, and you will not stop us!

And doesn't work with anyone else's transmission bits?

The max power/torque rating also is an eyebrow raiser.

The idea of a tighter ratio 1x13 does have some appeal but sadly I don't like the idea of cramming more gears into the same space. I do want a chance to play with the Rotor Uno group though just for pure fun see what the fuss was about.

The 3x7 on my gravel bike is worth about 17 unique useful gear ratios anyway.

Would love to see a video of it. Looks like a way out of the box concept. Interesting!

And people thought disc brakes were dangerous. Sidenote, if you're touring and didn't bring a meat grinder, you actually did...

I don't mind the innovation and change. I rarely use it mind you, but manufacturers need new and exciting ways to convince you that what you presently own is inadequate or antiquated. Much of it is marketing more than filling any real need. If this excites some folks then I'll consider it a good thing.

Something new never fails to bring men out of their caves touting clubs and animal pelts as having been sufficient to sustain life. How did you guys ever get past single speed and loin cloths?

To speak about adequacy and need is to completely miss the point. Marcus has the right spirit with the CVT comment. I'm looking forward to Di3.

Anyway, gravelcyclist.com will likely review the Rotor parts soon enough.

Bob, aren't you running an even more expensive 1x14 drivetrain?

When a single rear cassette can cover the range needed, we will see a return to multiple chain rings upfront, not to ectend range, but to fill in the ratio gaps, by halfs and thirds as was done after the development of conventional rear deraillers in the past.
