I have been looking at an older Scott mtn. bike that would be easy to upgrade to a Nexus Inetr-8 hub. I have never done this before and the bike shops think I am crazy and try to talk me out of using the Nexus hub, must have a derailer fetish.
I want to take the triple off the front and replace it with a single. Take the derailer off and have the wheels rebuilt with a Nexus hub. Probably change the handlebars but that is the easy part.
Has anyone done this before? If you have anything to watch out for or that you might have done differently?
