    I'm told this is a good sight, So here I am.

    I'm just getting into touring. I was once very heavy into riding but fell out of it some years back. When I heard a friend speak of a new kind of gearless hub, it peaked my curiosity.

    A few days later I was riding my very own NuVinci hub bike. This hub has rebirth my love for riding

    Welcome to Bike Forums, Ben. How do you like the NuVinci? What kind of bike do you have?

    You might want to check out the Utility and Commuting forums, they have a lot of NuVinci discussions.

    Well first off, if it was a bad hub/ride, I'd have no issue stating this.

    I've not been into bicycles for close to a decade. So I'm not up on the latest lightweight exotic material frames.

    In fact the reason I stopped riding was, I got tierd of getting flats and spending money on drive parts.

    When a friend spoke of the hub, it peaked my curiosity. Once I found the nuvinci site and read up on it, I knew this was just what I needed to get back on the bike.

    I called around to some bike shops and was given prices form $480.~$525. for a built wheel.

    I than found a Caddy town bike NIB for $600.(too much, but I wanted this thing). I bought it, got it and got real sad! This bike was the biggest *** I've seen in years! The good new was the Hub is the latest gen and the frame is a nice quality Aluminum build. All other parts are K-Mart at best!

    I had my old messenger bike(I was a Bike messenger for 12 years)and it has good parts, so I rob it of some parts. I wanted something upright, so the caddy was at least that.

    The bike rides like a dream! No maintinance and Armadillo tires, I'm in cycle heaven.

    I love it! It's a modified Caddy CVT.

    My old bike is a Mikkelson MTB(that I can no longer ride)I'm too old).

    With a 40t 17t set up, I'm getting 4.25 wheel rotations in high and 1.20 in low with one crank rotation.
