I'm writing this letter to make a tiny little wish that would change the world for atleast some future GT bike owners.
As you are well aware of, GT will in a couple of weeks release it's GT IT-1 with Nexus hub and Revo shifter.
The bike is awesome, and I've had the pleasure of riding the prototype for 2-3 weeks here in Norway - ending in a small review here on RM, aswell as a wishlist to the local distributor with some suggestions on a couple changes.
And there is only one thing I didn't like about the bike (except for the Kenda tires). I never really got a good feeling with the Revo during high speeds. The good things about the bike far exceeds this tiny little issue, but the bike would be totally flawless for me with this upgrade!
Shimano generally has a 1:2 ratio on their shifters, while SRAM has 1:1. Nexus is running a 1:1.8 ratio, and even though I don't know the value of 1 on the nexus, it forces you to use the Revo - and have no other option.
Please please please consider making a tiny little upgrade set for your SRAM XO Trigger shifter that just includes a wheel that matches the Revo 1:1.8 pull....I'll assemble it myself.
(and I'll bet you'll sell atleast.......50.....(!)...of them)
Thank you for your time!
Trigger (who's been using your products for years) :love:
