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
Bike Universe in Saskatoon, Canada getting all powered up with Cinq components and Son hubs!
Made possible with Cinq shifters!
So what should we call this bike? Look closely...you no longer have to choose between a Pinion Drive Technology Gearbox and a Rohloff AG Speedhub for your next ...build! 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

I was feeling like a different challenge this month, so I veered away from my northbound trajectory in favour of crossin...g La Pampas (the Argentinean plains). This 2000km ride took me from Bariloche to Buenos Aires. What I hoped for was a change of scenery, what I ended up with was dozens of new friends and a new perspective of Argentina!
Let me know what you think!
