Gears within the bottom bracket is coming soon and Belt drive too.
Don't know about drag with a belt drive though? As It is well known that a roller chain, is the most efficient method of transmitting power without losses.

gus, gus gus.
Was with you right up to the cable routing on the top tube :roll:
This is obviously the best place for several reasons...
- All cables together. Much better than having them all over the place
- More flxible routing options for uk routing on USA frames
- I love the lines from TT to seatstay for rear mech. Sweet. Also on new scholl matching for disc. I like symmetry - essence of beauty.
- Like the little cable for a top pull front mech. Those plastic bb guides just seem a bodge


Agree a ss or cableless bike would look better though. Biggest problems with internal are full length outers, routing through, rattle.
Dang, we do need wireless mechs... :lol:

If I remember correctly did the original Moultons have rollers for some of the cable guides so that when the bike folded the cables stayed taut. No need for outers.
