I was reading a review for the Torker Graduate in my Bicycle Times magazine and the drum brakes and IGH got me interested. Info:
It got me thinking -- I have an old Schwinn frame w/drops (Tourist) that fits me really well and I have fenders and tires from my old commuter. I would like to put a set of 26" wheels (has 27" now) on it for the additional tire width and fender clearance and use it for a winter commuter. The drum brake/IGH setup would be perfect since the fork isn't built for discs.
I started looking around and I can't really seem to find ready-built wheels with drum/IGH combo. Anything I found was expensive enough that I might as well just buy the Graduate ($500).
Is there anywhere you guys know where to buy ready to go 26" wheels like this for a reasonable price?
