    recommend a hub for me

    so i am changing my single speed bianchi san jose to have gears in the back...I have to use the hone derailleur made by shimano since i have track ends...i am pretty sure the spacing is 130mm. so what kind of hub do you recommend...i'd like something mid-grade

    I think Shimano's Hone derailleur can only be mounted to their Hone or Saint hubs and I think the San Jose's are 120mm spaced, but I might be wrong.

    An internal hub might be your best bet if you want to add gears.
