I'm still not sure which hub to go with. I'm not very technical here but is it possible to take off my freewheel, put on like an old 5 speed freewheel and just use friction shifter and rear derailer? Even more, is it possible to get something with a close ratio-- example: I run single speed crank in front with 36 chainring, ideally I would like something with 16, 18, 20 in back. 18 most of the time, 16 downhill, 20 when I'm tired, or hills. How would I do something like that?
How would that throw off my chainline? Did they ever make 3 speed freewheels and if so what derailer would work. Sorry if I'm such a newb.
Hmm found this:
3 speed freewheel with 16, 18, 22-- that would rock! looks like i have to buy em in lots of 50 who wants to help me buy the other 49
Why can't they make an internal hub geared like this instead of the wide ratio ones they make?
