I'm interested but having trouble finding much info on the Alfine 11 speed internal gear hub.
• Is it (or will it be) available in a 36 hole drilling.
• Has anyone come out with a shifter that would be compatible with drop bars? (prefer bar end)
• Anyone ridden one? I was planning a touring bike with a traditional drive train but funds have run dry half way through the build because some things came up. If I have to wait to complete the build i'm wondering if an IGH such as this might be, you know, awesome.
