New gearbox product from SRAM:



It's a two-speed front crankset/gearbox combo.  Its cool to see them trying something new - I figure this will either be very cool and take off or very lame and die a quick death.  Just think, the new uber-coolness will be a custom-steel, fully-rigid, carbon forked, I-9 29'r front/650b rear wheel with a Stan's tubeless setup, duo-speeder.  Just think of the all the smugness you could ooze while riding that  ;)

I think this requires ISCG tabs so it can be mounted to the frame so the only bike I could run it on would be my HT and I don't really ride it (nor do I need more gears on that bike - it is setup for skate parks mostly) enough to justify dropping the money on it; however,  I think my XC bike will have tabs on it so it would be a consideration once the beta testers determine if it is a good product or not.
