    This is the bike that #1 2003, 2004 an 2005 UCI team of the year - Maxxis Msc team (Pascal, Vazquez, Berchtold) are gonna race on in the next season. (It seems kind of like VPP sort of suspension ...) I suppose gear box is here to stay...
    Does anybody know which other two teams are gonna use g-boxx systems next year?

    Your face.
    Its a single pivot with a link driven shock, same as all the rest. Sucks, I was hoping for something new.

    Surely there has to be a way to go with something else other then a single pivot?

    If it wasn't for the fact that the Rohloff hub would self-destruct if you ran a smaller chainring than 34T, you could get more ground clearance and lower BB height.
