    Post a photo of your IGH conversion commuter!

    Hello all, I am looking for inspiration for my latest build, a converted derailleur trekking bike to IGH hub.
    I'd really appreciate a bit of IGH eye candy, so if any of you have a photo of your IGH conversion handy, if you can post it I'd be really grateful.
    I'm particularly interested in any Cross Check IGH conversions/builds, or similar.

    Thanks all in advance, and have a great weekend!

    Simon

    Here's a slightly out of date shot of my commuter:Image0025.jpg

    This started out as a cheap 18-speed mountain bike. Now fitted with a sturmey-archer AG 3-speed with generator, along with fixed lights, rack, fenders, north road handlebars and a chainguard, in the style of dutch city bikes.

    I did a conversion a few years back and will dig out the pics today or take new.

    Saw your thread in bike mechanics. Powerarranger explained it well.

    I'll have photos on Monday, I'm switching over from an 8spd Suntour derailleur to a 5-speed Sturmey-Archer X-RD5(W)! Its exciting!

    Here's mine. It's pretty much modeled after Sheldon Brown's Bianchi San Jos8 he built.

    It's a Shimano Red Band/Alfine/whatevertheycallit now 8-speed hub. I used the Versa shifter as well but added that later. I started off with the twist shifter. Rims are Sun CR18 and I had a shop build the hub into the wheel for me.

    Here is my Bianchi Campione withe Shimano Nexus 8 speed. I opted to keep the drop bars and put the Jtek bar end shifter on it, which I like a lot. I've probably put close to 2000miles on the hub since I got it in may. It had some skipping gear issues at first. It does have a break in period but now it is smooth and rarely if ever comes out of gear anymore. Will be riding my 2nd century on it tomorrow.

    My Norco winter bike is built with an SA AG (AW with generator) in the rear... the same wheelset was used on my Kuwahara Shasta before I retired it from winter duty.

    Huge thanks to all.
    Much food for thought.
