Why haven't you guys bought a Rohloff yet? Is it because they are so expensive? Did you know that they are actually built in Germany so the extra money you are spending is putting bratwurst and potatoes on a blue collar 1st worlder's table instead of lining the pockets of the uber rich 1%?
What will it take to make you guys converts? Does some race guy have to win a downhill race or the tour de france with it before the mainstream will pick up on it? The current derailleur system is extremely archaic, surely IGH will be the wave of the future.
