Internal hubbed DTFS

I haven't been able to recover the thread, but didn't somebody (maunakea?)mount an internal hub on their DTFS? If so, was it only a chain tensioner that made it work? Does it change gears smoothly, unaffected by the rear suspension? I'm already dreaming up another mod for next spring...

I think you want to talk to brucemetras, though he may not have been the only one to modify his DTFS in that way.

That was one of Bruce's mods... it works even with the rear shock.... of course, the OE preload setting on the rear shock is very stiff so it is virtually a hardtail.
