For me, right after its built I choose to 'forget' the cost as well.

Every build is different, there are so many variables that the total cost of this is not important. As you rightly said, a ballpark figure can be easily worked out for someone eager to replicate or build something similar for themselves.

Sweet build. I'm planning one too as soon as the XL is released. I'm also coming of a 26er.

I think it is important to try it in real world conditions. I honestly don't notice the drag on the trail and the engagement, I agree is terrible, doesn't come into play either (I do have an i9 hub which I think is important - having a low engagement hub would probably result in a poorer experience).

I obviously came from a normal drive train before this (XX1) so its not like I don't know what that felt like, and I have swapped bikes with friends on the trails since I've gotten the Taniwha. They agree the way it pedals and transfers power into motion is simply better regardless of the above mentioned car park flaws. In the end, real world experience is what matters.

To me this means 2 things:
1. the current gearbox solution is already a better experience in many ways to other options
2. there is room for improvement to make it even better going forward and hopefully Pinion are on top of that.

Yes they are. They allow the line to make tighter turn as it normally exits straight trom the front of the shifter.
