Looks very well thought out. Not available yet, and not really finalized until Ryan Van Duzor does the Tour Divide on it.

More or less a hardtail with 600% range Pinion gear box, Gates belt drive, 100mm travel fork, dynamo hub + light.

Looks like an American version of the German Tout Terrain Outback, probably also in the four figures.

True. Tout Terrain doesn't get a lot of exposure in America.

Tout Terrain and VSF Fahrradmanufaktur are both truly excellent bikes.

I want a Rohloff bike and it will likely come from one of them..Nua Silice would be the ultimate though

Not sure why it was labeled as a tourer given the lack of rack mounts on seat stays.

I could be tempted to try a Pinion 18, but not a Pinion 12. The gears are spaced farther apart than I would like. I find my Rohoff gears are a bit farther apart than I would like, but they are close enough that I can live with it. The Pinion 12 gear spacing is much wider than that.

J'think? I'm seeing a US street price of over $900 for the Pinion C1.12 gearbox and about another C-note for the shifter. Still, it should come in well under the Pinion P1.18 fitted $7000 Co-Motion Siskiyou.

Use both...Why settle for just one thing Rohloff and Pinion or get a tandem with two pinions and a Rohloff and you can try the 12 and the 18.

My Tout Terrain with the Pinion 18 is nice. From my viewpoint it is not the closeness of the ratios, but the convenience of shifting. It is so easy to shift that I find I am shifting more than on my derailleur equipped bike. Of course, here in Vermont a lot of shifts are six or eight gears since many hills don't really have a flat section on top or bottom.

I have never ridden a Pinion bike, but I assume shifting is very much like Rohloff. Agree on the ease of shifting and I probably shift my Rohloff much more often than I shift my derailleur bikes.
