Ideas aplenty here.  The Rohloff drive is slick.

That's cool. I've never seen belt drive bikes before.

Knock on wood but, I've never ripped too many shifters, brakes and asst'd stuff off the bike to want a SS, 1x9 or Rohloff setup.

Question about a Rohloff would be IF you get a mechanical in the middle of Timbuktu - who's gonna have parts for that piece of German bizness?  

I'd keep it simple on a long ride - a 1x9 will get you most places.
