    G-BOXX Planetary, first pics

    First pics of Karlheinz NICOLAI´s all-new G-CON (http://www.g-boxx.org) compatible "G-BOXX Planetary", with a built-in Rohloff Speedhub. The gearbox is installed in the all-new NICOLAI Nucleon AMX (all pics were taken by Fränky G. [http://www.mtb-news.de/forum/member.php?u=16232, http://www.mtb-news.de/forum/showthr...00#post2956000]).

    So far I know, the weight of the UNIVERSAL TRANSMISSIONS/NICOLAI "G-BOXX Planetary" is not yet published. However, the weight of the SR Suntour "V-BOXX-FR9" (http://www.srsuntour-cycling.com/SID...d=75&type=news, http://www.ridemonkey.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=164572) should be 3.000 g (with crank arms), according to the SR Suntour catalog 2007 (http://www.srsuntour-tuning-base.com...alog07-low.pdf).

    KG, not g, methinks...

    This is like watching a re-run of motorcycle evolution in the first half of the last century...

    Looks too expensive for mass consumption.

    Isn't that just the same as the G-Boxx that's been around for a few years now?

    The new "G-BOXX Planetary" is conform to the G-CON transmission housing and mounting standard now. So it is no longer welded to the frame, but bolted-on. The diameters of the chainwheels as well of the primary drive as well as the secondary drive are much bigger in diameter now. So the ground clearance of the gear unit is reduced. Only the Rohloff cartridge could be nearly the same, but the chain is at the right side now! The rear brake can be mounted at the left side. The rear hub of the Nucleon AMX is a common standard hub, but without a free-wheel.

    europeans tend to delineate thousands, millions, etc. with the period, and use the comma as the decimal point. strange but true.
