I am thinking about building a travel bike with a Shimano Nexus 8-speed rear hub. And I want to use S&S couplers on the frame, so that I can put it in a suitcase. And travel to fantastic places far away, like, the Czech Republic... in September 2009!
I know that with S&S couplers I have to install a cable splitter on the cable connecting the shifter to the rear hub, in order to take the bike apart.
Is there any potential shifting problem with doing this? I am afraid that after connecting and dis-connecting the cable many times that maybe the shimano nexus will not shift correctly anymore.
Has anyone out there tried doing this? thanks.
