Pinion’s Gearbox – Ready for the Future
For those who spend time thinking about this future, gearing has been a constant theme. Derailleur mechs have a number of obvious flaws, like how easily they can be destroyed by a stray rock, the fact they put weight on an awkward part of the bike and that are they open to the elements. Yet nobody has managed to find a suitable alternative yet, well until now – maybe. We have been monitoring the development of a German-made 18-speed sequential-shift gearbox, designed specifically for mountain bikes. The pinion gearbox is now nearing production and its future looks very bright.
