About this deal

Discover living deserts, lush jungles, historic cities, hidden ruins, pristine beaches, vast canyons and a towering snow-capped volcano. The cassette’s lockring appeared to be quite fragile and its splines had some visible scoring after one use with a cassette tool, so care should be taken when fitting and removing the cassette to avoid stripping the splines. Take on awe-inspiring weather events like towering dust storms and intense tropical storms as Mexico’s unique, dynamic seasons change the world every week.

However, general shifting was good and with a positive push of the lever (more on this below) the derailleur didn’t miss any shifts and wasn’t hesitant in its operation.Box ONE is an ever-evolving game of trivia, codes, puzzles, and discovery - only from the mind of Neil Patrick Harris. At the clutch’s factory setting, there was significantly more chain slap than I was expecting and when pedalling in a high gear over rough ground, the gears had a tendency to skip around the cassette. Like the SRAM systems, Box’s reliability might be better in the long run, but its performance is so compromised it’s hard to vouch for it.

However, the shifter has one fixed position on its clamp which, coupled with its bulky shape, could be problematic for some setups if it interferes with brake levers, especially if you are unable to use SRAM’s Matchmaker or Shimano’s I-Spec adaptors.The Box Two cassette was originally designed for use with ebikes and uses sprockets made from stamped steel that are pinned to an alloy spider, to help deal with the extra stresses an electric motor dishes out. I have done a few different mystery boxes with my now 21 y/o daughter, and I have really enjoyed spending time together at something we both enjoy. The cable-pull lever can shift four gears at once if pushed far enough, but accessing the last shift is virtually impossible while riding because of the amount of travel required to engage the gear. Its body and cage are made from a mix of carbon-nylon composite, stainless steel and hardened alloy steel.

Reducing tension on the adjustable clutch did lighten upshifting but increased the amount of chain slap and reduced overall chain stability, making the adjustment to a lighter setting a compromise not worth making. The Box Two Prime 9 cassette uses Shimano’s HG freehub standard which means the smallest sprocket size is limited to 11t while the largest cog is 50t – only one or two teeth away from the biggest offerings from SRAM and Shimano.Both the cable-pull and cable-release paddles are quite short, which made setting the shifter in my preferred position tricky, especially without a Matchmaker or I-Spec II adaptor. Cable tension was very sensitive and there was an incredibly small sweet spot where the gears shifted well.

Team up with other players and enter the Horizon Arcade for a continuing series of fun, over-the-top challenges that keep you and your friends in the action and having fun with no menus, loading screens or lobbies. Also had to look up some of the trivia; I personally don’t enjoy puzzles where anyone couldn’t solve it based purely on reasoning as opposed to knowing a niche fact. To access the fourth shift I needed to move my thumb more than was possible without rotating my wrist around the bar. As such, the Box One Prime 9 system has been designed with durability and shifting performance in mind, and although it only has nine gears, it still shares its wide-ratio cassette range with other brands’ 12-speed offerings.It has nickel plating that’s claimed to help reduce corrosion and is coated with its Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) finish to improve hardness, reduce wear and increase smoothness. The cable-pull shift lever moves the derailleur before the shifter ratchet engages the next gear, so if I missed a shift it caused the derailleur to shift back to a smaller cog on the cassette with a large clunk. The main pitfall of Box One Prime 9’s drivetrain is its dominatingly heavy shift operation caused by its stiff and slightly sticky clutch. Hitting those famous tracks day in, day out for eight years, he broke more bikes than he can remember. Minor things that keep it from a full 5 stars: some of my puzzles were revealed a little early, because when the box gets shipped it wiggles a bit and things don’t always stay aligned correctly.
