SRAM actually has a modern take on the 2-Speed kickback hub that doesn’t suck. I’m totally with you. I think where HammerSchmidt wins is the universality of compatibility (basically bolt it on any frame) but I’m certainly not clamouring to put one back on my bike. BUT, it’s really a what-if. Maybe some kind of variable roller clutch could have added gears and reduced drag? I’d love one as you say.
