    New for Rohloff

    https://www.bikerumor.com/2017/07/13...kes-get-first/

    It's electronic shifting for eBikes but my guess is that they'll offer it for non-lazy cyclists too

    Could make for a lighter shifting system than what is offered now.
    Can make trigger shifting fans happy.

    This is a little off topic but... E-Bikes aren't for "Lazy" cyclists. A lot of people that buy them couldn't enjoy cycling otherwise. E-Bikes aren't motorcycles. Even the best of them are just bikes that go a little faster.

    Where is that "Face palm" icon , I still can't find it .......


    You know guys , lots of people have cars and don't post about them in a Bicycle forum. I'm sure there are motorcycle forum all over the Interwebz.
    My point of posting that was that I would be in line to get one for one of my Rohloff.

    I don't really care for it's use with motorcycles and as you probably know , it's a bicycle forum. (human powered vehicle)

    Apparently we're not allowed to point out that Ebikes have motors.
