    Mark Slavonia - I would think the times would be faster too. Not trying to make excuses, but in addition to the weight, I believe there is a significant power loss with the NuVinci CVT gearing system. Would love to be able to try a test on how much power is lost & I have some ideas how to do it.

    Awesome, except you missed donut alley. Thanks for your comments in Nextdoor. You are very patient and thoughtful in your remarks ....

  15. Stuart C.

    This is fantastic. How low does the gearing on these things go? I would imagine grinding at super low cadence?

  16. Chris Phipps

    Stuart, the gearing is pretty good for most climbs. It's NuVinci CVT, 380% range 0.5 under to 1.9 over https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NuVinci_Continuously_Variable_Transmission

  17. Chris Phipps

    Tom, thank you. Sorry I missed the donuts :-(
