Since there are a few people on the forum that use it, I thought you would be interested in something that just came over the Bike FRiday YAK group. You can pick up the discussion there if you are really interested.
in reference to the Nexus-8 hub
I broke one, on a Pocket Llama. Every time I fold/unfold the bike,
the shifter goes out of adjustment. Ride it a while with the shifter
out of adjustment and you can destroy the hub. Royal PITA. Had it
apart a half dozen times both with and without the service manual, and
wasn't able to fix it (despite being something of an expert on the
repair of the Sturmey-Archer hub gears).
On that topic, would anyone be interested in buying a year old Pocket
Llama built for a 5'11" tall rider, with non-working Nexus 8 in the
rear wheel, working Schmidt SON hub generator front wheel and Inoled
20+ headlight? Comes with folding rack, and Brooks B-17 saddle,
broken in. If you don't appreciate Brooks, let me know and I'll ship
it without the saddle. Hoping for $600. Make me an offer.
