    I really thought of bringing it into production. But the cost is too high compared to potential customers.
    I would need to sell more than 10000 units to be competitive. Before that more development is needed.

    From this point of view probably no production 😳.
    Or is there somebody who would give more than 100000 USD for startimg a serious business?

    I presume you have contacted Pinion about supporting this project?

    The twist shift is the biggest single thing that most reviews (especially MTB-orientated reviews) complain about.

    On cost, maybe out of reach for the utility bike market, but the 2-part Cinq5 Shift:R retails at 299 with the road ones at 599 for Rohloff.
    Looks to me that your thumbshifter could also work with Rohloff, perhaps with small changes, to access a bigger market?

    All the best,

    Could you sell the idea to Pinion in exchange for free future product? Since you already have your personal needs met and you otherwise (probably accurately) view scaled manufacture as being too complicated and expensive to pay off?
