Default Re: Automatic MB?

Bleh, no thanks. The video on the page can basically be summed up as:
"Too stupid to shift a bicycle? Well now you don't have to!
Now I don't have to be fiddling around with confusing levers!
I was so confused by which gear I always had to be in. "

The mechanism that shifts seems neat, but I don't see why they couldn't just sell the dérailleur as a separate unit. If you could buy just the auto dérailleur, it may be something that would work well on a jackshaft. Don't know how it would hold up to having way more RPMs and torque than it was designed for.
