So I've always had this dream that a CVT g-boxx that lets you choose a constant cadence and adjusts itself to the terrain is the way forward. Next best would be a user controlled infinitely variable transmission like the nu-vinci VT hub shoe horned into the G-boxx.
Anyway, this isn't the first time I've asked a Nicolai rep about this but this time the man himself answered.
Not good news, at least from my perspective. Here's a snipped copy of the e-mail and reply.

Which brings me to this post. Is there anyone else out there that thinks a CVT(or VT) g-boxx is a good thing and, if so, could they please also e-mail email@example.com requesting it. I'm hoping that, with enough requests, there'll be some development work done by G-boxx.org in this direction.
