GT bike w/ mid-mount Nexus hub
Check this out, a slick ride if you have an extra US$5000 laying around. The 2006 iT1, with a mid-mounted Nexus8 and intermediate chainr drive system.
This Popular Science article has a good diagram of the drivetrain.
Certainly an interesting design, and this is a Pacific Cycles (USA) brand.
Ya never know 'til ya try
OK. I will get two. One to ride and one for a back up bike.
