We get a lot of questions about the Pinion version of our Shift:R Road. We do have some out in the wild...these are undergoing product testing before we enter full-fledged production. We will announce availability on all of our channels, so watch this space! In the meantime, the Rohloff version is available for pre-order, and we will be shipping these soon! #hellocinq

So what should we call this bike? Look no longer have to choose between a Pinion Drive Technology Gearbox and a Rohloff AG Speedhub for your next! Our test bike uses two prototype 'double' Cinq Shift:R trigger shifters, a Pinion C1.12 gearbox, Rohloff 500/14 Speedhub and a Gates Carbon Drive system with 118-tooth CDX belt and 50T by 24T front and rear sprocket combination. This gives you a 3000% gear range and 168 gear combinations, with speeds ranging from 4.9km/h to 124.1km/h at 90 RPM. This should appease everyone from loaded bikepackers to land-speed record chasers! Oh and we used Tacx to keep stable at 128km/h on the trainer and Garmin to measure ridiculous speed and cadence. #gcnhack
