For those who fondly recall 13~17 freewheels, there's a new
10~50 cassette!

50 teeth! Wow, I never thought I'd see the day when my 34 tooth biggest
cog was considered too small.

I'm getting a little out of date. I gotta catch up.

How does the weight of that 10-50 cassette compare to a three allow chainrings and a 7-speed or 8-speed steel cassette of 14-32?

Ah, you give us a voucher to make fun of your dorky handlebar bag and all the other stuff you bolted to your bike one more time. Keep up the good work.

Weight isn't the reason to come up with this kind of stuff. Get rid of the FD is.

Only 12 gears on the freewheel? How about 21 gears?

You are not a true utility cyclist. Be quiet. You probably wear a helmet, also known as a head-shackle.

Indeed this was driven by MTBers modifying their bikes, so companies
followed SRAM in particular.

My old MTB which was 3-9 I switched over to 1-9 few years back.

Makes for a simpler system for the commute and with a chain catcher much
less hassle.

For that bike it works well even with kit that’s not intended, ie not a
wide/narrow chainring hence the chain catcher.

Because it's SO difficult to move another lever?

I can't wait!

BTW, browsing around your photo pile, I was pleased to see the Berg
catalog. Always interesting. I wonder if that cable chain might actually
become workable.
