11-speed has notably more range and more even jumps but as I said, for off-road I’d love a bigger % range and would be happy with less gears. There are absolutely shifting sacrifices in terms of under-load performance but I find with being able to shift without pedaling I can make up for it usually. I also cover myself here with the price of the hub (still can’t believe how cheap they are for what they are compared to MTB stuff) and the ability to easily swap in a derailleur. It’s a total pipe-dream but this is at least as much about entertainment and conversation as any real sense companies are going to ditch the add-a-cog-every-two-to-four-years routine.
