Well, I finally finished my long delayed i-Motion 9 project. As we all know, drop bar mounting options are very limited for IGH shifters, so I thought I would share my solution.
I decided to make an aero clip a permanent part of the handlebar assembly, complete with interupter levers directly mounted to it. So why not mount the shifter to it as well.
Seems to work OK, except for the fact that the gear indicator window is not easilly visible. Not a big problem for me, as I don't pay much attention to which gear I'm in at any time anyway. Need slower gear, shift down, need faster gear, shift up, like that, ya know?
As for opinions of the Sram hub, and comparisons to my other gearhubs, not really ready to render an opinion yet, but my early impressions are, it ain't going to stack up favorably to the Shimano hubs.
