I just made the decision to get rid of the derallieur system on my daily rider. I was originally thinking a NuVinci, but frankly that’s a lot of money for me at the moment. Instead I opted for a Sturmey Archer S80 8 speed internal hub with internal drum brake. So in addition to losing the derallieur I am also dropping my rear v-brake. When the hub arrives I’m going to have Bikes on Wheels in Kensington market lace the same Alexrims as I have on my front. I’m literally salivating at the moment.
