they now do a freehub body combined with their own cassette which saves weight compared to a standard freehub body and normal cassette, also it can run down to a 9tooth sprocket which means that single chainring up front becomes a sensible option using a 9-32 10speed cassette, also they do a chiandevice thing to replace the front mech but to keep the chain on.

saw some of it last year and it looks rather nice but i can't be arsed with 10speed etc

is it just 10 speed?
i would be interested in a 9t at 9 speed :roll:
sounds interesting yet expensive! surely for it to be viable they need to keep the cost low, either that or a weight weenie/rich person job
