It's all pretend opinion until you've ridden a gearbox bike and having riden a demo Zerode last year at Sea Otter, I was blown away with how good it was. Sure, I would need to adjust to the grip shifter, but the suspension was undeniably better without the weight, and it shifts like a dream. And it wasn't just me, but also my wife and sister were very impressed with how good they were. All three of us would  happily own a gearbox bike. And I'm gonna think real hard about getting one as my next bike. Quite likely actually.   I would happily take the tiny reduction in efficiency (and I say that as someone that will do all day rides) for the improvements of a gearbox. Well, at least the Pinion 9 speed I tested.
