    Mine is nicer than yours

    Been running it all year without a hiccup. Took it apart recently to find absolutely zero contamination on the inside.

    What is the future of the Hammerschmidt?

    Sorry no pics, but I am very interested in the Hammerschmidt for my next bike. What do you think is the future for the Hammer.? Where will go from here?

    Lighter?
    Cheaper?
    Will Shimano come out with a similar product?
    Any rumors out there?

    Its cool to see a bunch of bikes getting speced. with them.

    Thanks,

    As of today I too can play. Attached is a video of my new bike sent to me today which shows it in action as well as a discussion around hammerschmidt design considerations.

    My new baby which is specifically designed for the hammer crankset; I'm well impressed with the hammerschmidt so far, i wanted to wait for Nicolai's bbox system but its not going to be available for some time :|

    Thanks for posting this and congrats on your new bike. This video helped me understand the hammerschmidt system better than any other thing I have looked at.

    Appreciate it.

    How's the Hammerschmidt work on your Reign x? I have a 09' x1 and was thinking of going with Hammmer. Did you have to make any mods to make it work?

    thanks

    Since I am not tscheezy apparently when it comes to ride reviews, I will leave it at I LOVE IT!!!! Honestly, its exactly what I had hoped we would come up with, a hardtail that can be used effectively for the rides I currently use my FS trailbike for. I am going to order a cog for the rear and run it is a dinglespeed (2 x 1) and cannot wait - it's current a 12 speed (2 x 6 as pictured)

    Ridden for 6 months or so. It has held up well aside from cosmetic dings. The shifter pod died and I replaced it with a gripshift unit that works just fine.

    I think I've got one of the few Runes with a Hammerschmidt on it. built that thing to handle a bit of riding up at Snowshoe, plus anything I could throw at it around here

    I've got a couple 'Schmidts out on customer bikes and they really seem to like them.

    What I really want to see is one that's slimmed down. There's a lot of steel in there and I'm sure that they could remove some weight for an XC version. From what I could tell, it adds almost 900 grams over a traditional set-up.

    The cool thing is that they open up the design possibilities. The massive backplate can make fitting a challenge (see Enel's bike) but dumping the front derailleur is the right way to go. I hope a new version is on the way.

    dont think the 900 grams is accurate. my math suggests something in line with SRAM, noting 1.4 lb weight gain (~+635 grams for AM version) as compared to say an XT crank with XT front der. so for other than a weight weenie who i doubt will ever want one, slimmed down or not, negligible and IMHO the benefits, which are very hard to appreciate in typed format and have to be experienced to appreciate, far outweigh the weight issue. In summary, its entirely rad

    I would like to see a 20 tooth version. The current version will not support a 20 tooth ring, even if I got one custom cut due to the diameter.

    20 tooth? you must be one of those tool 29er riders to feel the need for such a girly little ring

    facturer that can weld one on for you. Far as I know your frame has to have one to mount the plate to it... Sorry for the bad news

    SRAM states that an ISCG tab is the only way to mount Hammerschmidt. Most custom builders could add the tab to a steel frame, but Hammerschmidt is bulky and can interfere with the chainstays on many 29ers. I have heard that some builders will grind away a portion of it's back plate but I'm not sure how much material you can remove before it all goes wrong.

    Schlumpf has had planetary cranks for years and it looks like they have a couple of different mounting schemes for retrofit:

    So is there any news that SRAM still cares about this product? I always liked the idea but was hoping they could shave some more weight on the system and make it a tad better through iteration.

    It seems like they are abandoning the idea. The signs are:

    1. Sram 1x11 is going to be released.
    2. No updates to HS design at all. Even the obvious little flaws haven't been addressed in 4 years.
    3. Shimano never entered the game.


    That's way too bad. I'm really enjoying my Transition Bank 2x1. My other bikes are gathering dust since I built it over a year ago.




    If the Hammerschmidt is discontinued, with parts becoming unavailable, and no other such design appears, I'll have to build 2 or 3 singlespeed bikes instead of this one.
