From the pics I've seen of the camhead heads, there appears to be two fairly widely-spaced bearings for the cams. This pick looks like the only bearings are right in the middle. Maybe it's just the angle of the pics though.

Gear drive for the cams huh? Sounds like a good idea, but I wonder if that will be a chain-driven gear in the heads that couples to gears on the ends of the cams? Guess time will tell.
