Yep, test riding a gorgeous Norco Ceres with Carbon Drive System.  Aside from the incredible fun, the shifting is fantastic and I caught myself saying “kchunk kchunk kchunk” as I shifted the Alfine 8 Speed IGH.  I guess I missed the sound after so many years of it being there.  The shifting is so smooth, and the hills?  That’s where I I really feel the difference between a chain and the CDS.  The Carbon Drive is getting me up those hills much faster than I would be able to on my old bike. Truth be told, I’m not in good enough shape to be making it up these hills and slopes as fast am I on this bike.  But damn I’m having a ball!
