building a s3x into a folding bike
One idea that has intrigued me recently is the idea of putting a Sturmey Archer s3x into a folding bike like a Montague Boston. I'd actually probably use a flywheel with it since the goal would be versatility. The s3x looks like it's a bit more durable than other IGH hubs too.
Thinking about it, the only problem I can think of is that during folding, the cable tension to the hub in the rear wheel might be interrupted, which would ruin the hub setup. Of course, the Boston 8 exists, which uses an 8 speed internal hub. In my imagining of the bike, I'd use bullhorns which would fold down during transport...
So, is that a problem?
