Hi there!

My name is Angus and I am a student at Loughborough University, UK.
I am currently undertaking a final year design project with the brief of:

"Design a drivetrain with specific advantages for MTB."

Please could you help me out by filling out my short survey.

https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/72J2TKS

If anyone is willing I am looking to open a discussion about the following questions.

What are the main issues you have with your MTB drive-train? Both in use and in maintenance.
Have you looked at new innovations? I.e. Carbon Belt Drive, Electric Shifting, Internal Speed Hubs...
If you have or haven't decided to 'upgrade', what have been your reasons?

Any thoughts or experiences you could give would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time.

All the best,
Angus

What about a variable resistance drive system like a CVT but based on a riders preference of cadence?

I stopped off there on my way to watch Leicestershire playing not so long ago.
I was quite impressed by all the old style houses and it gave me a real taste of England.
I had a bite to eat in a place called the Horse and (Something) Rolling Eyes Very Happy
It was alright actually.

Ah yes The Horse and Groom, a very fine watering hole. The britannia across the road is better these days. the Horse was good when we had a Polish chef in residence serving wSnezel with chips nom noms (not sure of the spelling) pronounced Sh net zel

Doesn't schnitzels and chips tend to induce uncontrolled outbreaks of farting?

I imagine that in those cold, still air, high pressure winter spells, with fog and frosticles cloying up the city it would pong a bit, if everyone indulged.

Thank's for the warning. Will stay up on the clear mountain air hill tops, where we mountain bikers belong. (Along with our obsolete, but fully functional, 3 by 9 gearing, that is!)

No that was the stuffed cabbage thing they used to make. Tasted amazing but the repercussions could be measured across 2 counties just by the number of small birds that fell out of the sky. pretty sure it was also responsible for the great smog bank of 1972.
