Totally valid point regarding OE spec. From XC-Racing to Freeride bikes it's just a matter of swapping the front chainring. I think 5-speed could be sold in much the same vein, although it would be an aftermarket product at least at first. My logic comes from single speeding where most folks I know run a 32t up front and then a huge variance of cog sizes from 18t to 24t depending on their relative strength/fitness/terrain. It's just the opposite where the cassette is a fixed range and then it's biased low or high depending on the ring you choose. Maybe I'm underthinking it.
