Crosspost from Utility Cycling and Commuting forums:
I'm building a rear wheel for my Schwinn Twinn tandem. I researched several internally geared hubs and decided on the SRAM Spectro 7 with drum brake. After much searching, I found a few websites that listed them, but all have told me they were not in stock. The company I placed my order with told me they were waiting for QBP to get them from SRAM, the 2008 shipment of them has not left Germany.
Does anyone know if this is the case? Any tips on an LBS somewhere that might have one of these lying around?
