    IGH for cyclocross

    Does it make sense to use an Alfine hub on a cyclocross bike?

    Course dependant..

    If you got no big run ups, Because the portage may be a bit of work ,
    but just a quick barrier leap shouldn't be too much ..

    Maybe one of those 3 speed fixie hubs? as I read they are Direct in high,
    the other 2 are reduction gears..
    to get over modest hills..
