Hey - so I'm the guy with the questionable choice in body armor on the bike (I messed up my elbow due to an involuntary dismount awhile back so I just make sure I've always have elbow pads on). Anyway, not a TRW employee, just a good friend of Taber's and been riding his gear for awhile now.

The comment below about us just being bike enthusiasts/engineers and not film directors is spot on. The clip was just an attempt to showcase the drive-train in a way that focused on the basics and not really intended to be an extreme Instagram segment. Points definitely taken on the clip not really showing how the drive-train performs under duress. That said, after a few hundred miles this summer on the TRW groupo, I can say it beats the heck out of the XT/SLX setup I was running before. I was pretty reluctant to go 1x (most of the rides around here involve a minimum 1K ft elevation gain) but I've become a convert.

Chain flop on the setup is on-par or better than what I had with a clutched Shimano rear - and it's consistent even when I'm in the rear 11 tooth - the Shimano would generate quite a bite more chatter if I was descending in a ratio that had the tensioner at a slack position.

I'll definitely throw on some knee pads (and some more speed) if we shoot another vid!
