I have been waiting for the T7 but no availability in sight so I took the easier maintenance option and went S10. I hate chains and being a 500 to 700 mile average day rider I cannot stand feeling the chain going to crap and shifting getting worse, bike putting out more vibes, etc. that a chain offers. I know most aren't sensitive to these things but it drives me nuts like only an OCD fool could appreciate. To top it off, the mess that is chain lube. No thanks. The S10 actually handles its weight well, too. I only did a little dabbing in the dirt when I test rode one last year.
