    Awesome! How's it ride? Can you compare it to a Rohloff or other gear hub equipped bike? Is there any drag from the gear box (like gear hubs -- sorry everyone, it's there and I'm a self professed Rohloff lover)? What's the complete bike weigh? And what is the range of the gearing and how many teeth in the chainring and sprocket? Sorry for asking so many questions, but you can't put up glamour shots of something so awesome and "novel" and not expect to get hounded for details!

    I try reply all your ask.

    I have been Rohloff usuary about 5.000km and 3.000km with Shimano Alfina 8S, so for this reason, I can compare very well this three sistems, but I need more time to test Pinion gearbox. Yesterdays I did my first ride (25 km) and the two principal caracteristics are the low transmission noise and gearshift smoothness. About noise, the 7th and 14th gear they have noise (clic, clic, clic...) but not is annoying noise and just needed go up or down a gear to solve the issue. For example, Rohloff hub have noise in all gears, above all in first 7 gears. And when you stop to give the pedals, in downhill, the noise becomes excruciating, for my opinion of course. In contrast, Alfine hub is all silence, eventually becoming danger if you ride in downtown because pedestrians do not hear you coming, but don't have operational accuracy or utilization range of the first two systems.

    No, not you feel any drag from gear box. The weight is around 11kg, but with diferent components (Thomson seatpost, Selle Italia saddle, hydraulic brakes, etc..) but remember is with titanium fork. You can see utilization range in Pinion web page, but I think is 680%, 11% step by step gear. I have 24 teeth front and 21 theeth rear.

    I hope answer all your questions. If you want more information, please, tell me something. I would like help with all information you needs.

    Pinion Gearbox - I love doing maintenance on my bike. But I love doing less maintenance on my bike even more.
