    Waiting for Pinion

    Well...after the Rolhoff I am convinced that internally geared hubs are the cycling equivalent of sliced bread. Paradoxically I'm going to be selling my Rohloff rear wheel (36 spoke QR built by Wheelbuilder.com), gearbox, and shifter because I just pulled the trigger on a Solace Cycles OM-P2 with a Pinion C.12 and a Gates belt drive.

    Since I bagged the Tour Divide this year I didn't have to lose a month's income and my lovely wife agreed to let me splurge a little on a new bike.

    I'll keep you all updated!

    You'll love it. I've got a CoMotion Siskiyou with a Pinion P 1.18, and it's changed how I look at bikes.

    I'm legit not sure if I'll ever buy another external derailleur.

    I sold my Rohloff bike and my fat bike to defray the cost of the new bike. I've never ridden a Pinion so this is a leap of faith.
