"Very well. I must hurry back to my comic book store, where I dispense the insults rather than absorb them".
I reckon though is SRAM want this version to take off, they need to license it to everybody for not a lot of money - eg let shimano in at say $4-00 a cassette and derailleur royalty - i'm sick of non compatibles, and theres far more money to be made out of licensing than lots of competition.
Bit more about it.
Found that quite interesting. So if you don't put the inner plates mashing with the narrower teeth it wouldn't work as well.However, they’re also built with alternating tooth thicknesses that are syncronized with the gaps in the chain – slightly narrower to fit between inner chain plates, and wider to take advantage of the extra space between outer chain plates.
