So, i just saw sixty-fivers 3speed hardtail on a different thread, which got me to thinking:
How does the 3 speed do off-road? I've been thinking about trying such a thing with an x-rd3, if i can get some indication that it can run a 2:1 ratio, offroad, without it getting fried. Obviously, no shifting under load, but i was thinking of using it like a singlespeed, with options. IE, coast, shift to low before a climb, start pedaling. Crest the hill, take a breather for a second, shift into high, cruise down.
