Well, I've never messed with a SRAM with a chain, but on my wife's folding
bike, she has a Sturmey Archer hub with a chain, and I have to say adjusting
the Clickbox is easier than adjusting her chain. It also makes the wheel a
lot easier to remove than the Sturmey design. Now perhaps the SRAM chain
setup was better than Sturmey's, but between the two I have here, I think I
prefer the Clickbox.
Of course as far as what problem it solved, I suspect that just like any
company that changes a design, the Clickbox is probably cheaper to produce.

The goal is to overcome the deliberate nature of the process.
