Lauf (the Iceland guys with their interesting suspension fork) used to offer one of their models in an EKAR configuration, either the true grit or the anywhere, i dont remember which. While i was trying to make up my mind whether to hit the "buy now" button, the option vanished from their ordering page and when i inquired, they just said *nope*. Their newer models, the Seigla and the Úthald, are wireless shifting only, which i guess makes sense for a smaller manufacturer, as does reducing the number of available configuration options.
