Re: A new shift concept for the engineers....
I don't think alignment would be to big a problem, my bike is not realy close as far as that goes and it works fine. Even if the shifting was like the old school 4x4 when you had to stop the vehicle, get out and engage the hubs. I mean if you had to stop the bike and kick a lever to change the sprocket it would still be nice to have that versatility. Cruise around on a 44t and kick it to a 52 to go off road, or kick it to a 36 for some nice flat cruising.
