    Hi Stephen

    sorry for the late reply. We had many bicycle trade show the
    last weeks. Unfortunatelly we did not found the right distributor for Canada.
    It is a pitty.

    This current G-BOXX-1 version is working with a modified
    14 speed rohloff internal and for this reason the
    OE price (1200-1500 euros) is very very high compared to the
    nexus or any deraileur systems. This G-BOXX-1 is manufactured
    in small quantities only.
    But anyway the G-BOXX-1 is a great product and we
    have already 3 different manufacturers building bikes
    for their 2006 Worldcup racing season ( Nicolai, MBK and MDC)
    The G-BOXX-1 system is welded to the frame and it is not working with the new
    standard interface G-CON.

    But nevertheless, and you have seen it on the CAD-screen ...
    we are working very hard these days in order to
    get a new G-BOXX-2 design done in order to lower the weight and
    the OE price very much. I cannot promise a date , but next summer
    seems realistic for prototypes . G-BOXX-2 will not be welded to the
    frame but be connected according to the new G-CON standard.
    All measurements reg. the G-CON standard will be online on
    www.g-boxx.org november 2005.


    best reg
