12-Speed (and 11-Speed) come from Schweinfurt for sure.  I’m not suggesting 12+ gear drivetrains are going anywhere, just encouraging folks to imagine an alternative. What if we gave you 6-Spds and one was a 12t or 11t for pavement? What about the same range as Eagle but much larger jumps? I ride from **[home to trails](https://nsmb.com/articles/if-you-cant-ride-home-ride-somewhere/)** regularly on the road on my single speed that’s geared for local trail usage. That’s informs my bias a lot when considering the five gear ratios I suggested as the potential Goldilocks in the article. Again, it’s just food for thought.
