:D :D
Mine is on a Moulton with a triple 10sp on a SA3sp rear wheel. I absolutely love the versatility of it as well as the range 16" to 134"
Heartily recommended, and if I need a new system on my Mercian, I'll be fitting the same.

The chain wear issue is still there of course just like it is with every derailleur bike. Chains and cassettes are consumable items but if you look after them and keep them clean they can last far longer than if you ignore them.

Not really on a pinion, just messing about :wink: Tourer is on 44-34-24 with12-32 or 34 giving me 86'' down to about 18'' and I find that I cant keep any steerage lower than about 25'' no matter how steep it is.
