There's nobody getting owned. BCD had a mech system(inboard)from memory, maybe a Nexus system too. There were others also, Nicolai had a nice one(well ugly wrong geo etc but cool). Not sure what predates what, but they've all been executed differently. At the ned of the day, you can buy a Zerode, it's as good or better than anything else with a gearbox(better than every DH bike IMO). No need for anyone to get upset, just get a ride on a Zerode, and enjoy, it's what it's all about remember.
