Yes Suntour/ Browning "the Beast" but it was indeed pretty different. Closer to that what what SRAM just patented but not the same either. It were the chain rings themselves which had one sector swiveling out ro catch teh chain from another. I was pretty ... more »

Remember my invention in 2016? A 550 Gramm 2 gear chain ring at the fron that shifted under full load...? http://www.vyro.com/ I had absolutely no chance against the 1-by-trend. Just stopped selling it last year. Still some hundreds on stock.

well thought a lot about These expanding gear System but the Point is that they will never be round. And if ever ridden an oval chainring you will know how much difference it makes if the chain ring is only a Little "unround". In the Video you can see ... more »

All right. I understand. The thing is that people see what they are used to see. I even met product managers from big companies and they looked on it for minutes and then asked what is new on it. To make it visible we actually even put in this drawings ... more »

Well actually the Browning and the Beast did not use this technology. If you look closer you will find out that the chain is not moved anymore. Browning used on segment to derail the chain from one sprocket to the other. At the Vyro System all segments ... more »

Funny that you guys wrote an article of my product a year ago showing acutally a working Version of this gear System which is also patented since years. Good luck Mr. Williams and I hope they refund you the Money for the application. See www.vyro.com. Product ... more »

I'd like to apologize for the comment made by jojotherider in the comments section of your video. The depth of American ignorance is infinite.

Hi guys,

I am the inventor of VYRO. Thanks for the honor. I hope I am welcome heare to add my comments. It has nothing to do with the Suntour principle. At this priciple the segment is only used to be a bridge between the currentn and the dailed gear. At my principle we really switch the segments into the chain line. So the chain stays always in exact the same position which makes it possible to guide it from both sides - the inner and outer. In the video the chain is really jumping because on this prototype we thought we can use a self lasered chain ring segment to run on a 11gear chain. This was obviously a msitake auctually because we were not able to propperly copy the tooth geometry. It runs perfectly round now when we use parts of standard shain rings.
So there has been for sure no principle like this on the market. I know because we invested a lot into patent research.
Dirt & Mud - well still a point we need to rpopperly figure aout. But generally we designed the prototypes very "open" so that the dirt will fall out again. I think it will run as long as a usual system will run too. If you apply a pounf of real mud every system will fail.
