Spotted on Bikerumor this AM:
Amongst all of the high zoot show bikes of NAHBS, SRAM had something new that was decidedly not as sexy, but still very important. Bolted onto the back end of a World Bicycle Relief Buffalo bike, SRAM was showing prototypes of their new 3 speed kick back hub.
I really like the idea of the WBR hub PTO gear on the NDS. Hook it up to an alternator and an online batter with an inverter and you have a perfect emergency power generator. Thinking back to situations like the rigged-together bike generators seen after Sandy.
