When you can't win 'em all, boyo, the smart thing is to live to fight another day.

For the past few weeks I've been riding an assortment of bikes with Alfine 11's and Nexus 8's.
I don't do clankers.
Today I got my RST out ready for a run to the fish & chip shop down the fen.
No contest, the Rohloff, bar the 7 & below whine, is by far the best.

'Winding up?' Isn't that what you do with Cuckoo clocks and derailleurs? ;D

Anto, lad, 'tis OK to dream, and surely no harm to dream of a boike-mit-Rohloff --

Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp,
Or what's a heaven for?

Cheers,

John  ;)

...surely no harm to dream of a boike-mit-Rohloff --

My dreams of Rohloff are always preceded by that horrid moment as I jumped the kerb on my last derailleur bike and, as I posted over the bump, the derailleurs and chainring folded under me and I came to within a fraction of painful cosmetic surgery to correct the effects of a face-plant. I was only about fifty paces from my LBS, so I dragged the inoperable bike with the locked rear wheel in there and told him, "Take it or trash it, but order me a bike without all that incompetent crap." Smartest thing I ever did. It led, eventually, to obtaining a bike that didn't trash my back every time I rode even as far as the garage to inflate the tyres, and of course that bike was bought, among other good reasons, for its Rohloff, a win-win for me.

How about an E bike with Rohloff Anto,  best of both worlds.

I saw an ebike yesterday, I was watching the launch of Boatie McBoatface at the time. At first I thought it was just a fatbike and I was thinking how hard it must be to pedal. I then saw the battery pack and understood how it's pedalled. Two things: Apparently it cost 4k!!!! I was struck by the shortness of the cranks and wondered if that was a fatbike or ebike necessity.
