He should upload it to vimeo, you can't watch it in Germany, because "the respective music publishing rights" weren't granted! :/
Vimeo doesn't care about that ^^

I never said anything about a patent, I just credit them for introducing it to the mtb world...
I've heard they couldn't patent it because the technology is so old, I'm not very familiar with how patents work, but as far as I know, you can't own a patent on something for ever. So because the narrow-wide stuff was first introduced decades ago, there is no patent on it by anyone.
I've heard the technology was first used with tractors, but I don't know that first hand, just heard it.

what?? did you read any of what I wrote? I know it's an old concept, and I know that's why they can't have a patent on it, but still nobody thought of using it for mountainbikes, even though it was out there for decades. You don't have to reinvent the wheel to make a great product. Most of the innovations that have been introduced to the mtb industry have been used in other (bigger) industries for years.
All I'm saying is, that even though the concept of narrow-wide teeth isn't an innovation by sram, they probably spend a lot of time looking for something like this and where the first mtb brand to recognise how useful it could be for a mtb drivetrain!
