My LBS is recommending the SRAM 7 speed hub (same spread as the Shimano 8) over the Shimano Nexus.
They do a lot of internal gear hub work.
One feature is the ease of removing wheel for tire service. Anyone else have experience with this hub?
SRAM has the external "clickbox" connection that quick connects the cable on and off so you don't have to
readjust when putting wheel back on. It also hangs out a bit.
It is for a Downtube full suspension. I am also deciding on drum, coaster brake versions or keeping
the v brake. I do go on some long downhills and I hear you can burn up drums unless you just use
the front v brake on a long run.
