I met the US distributer the other day. Cool guy. He had a gearbox carbon enduro bike with him.

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.

Cool design, and thank you for keeping an IFP. This shock should last for years without a rebuild.
Sure, it is expensive, but if you are a competitive enduro racer, you get what you pay for here, the best performing shock available (I can only assume at this point) for that use. Cool product for it's intended use. I'd take one in a Guerilla Gravity Megatrail.
