    Geared low for sure.. with over 400% range of the Alfine11, no real need for the Patterson... and you gain only 3 lower gears below 26 g/i over running a single chainring.. other than the 'coolness'...

    For some reason I've always tended to gravitate towards SRAM hollow pin chains .. they are quiet, marginally lighter, shift well, and I like the looks of them.. I even run them on IGH drivetrains.....

    Interesting .. the bike you link to has 2.0x406 Big Apples.. the bike you say you purchased above has 1.75x406 .. so I was using 1.75x406 as the size to calculate gear/inches.. but even if you use...

    Odd that the Dahon Site actually lists the g/i at slightly lower than my math at 86.6 g/i .. post your Dahon site so we can compare..

    52/11 on 406 1.75 tires yields 88 g/i , not 97 .. the P8 is a solid performer and has been for years.. enjoy it!

    Mine had 104, lucky you, 130 should be a piece of cake..





    I forgot there is no chainstay to deal with, so there shouldn't be a clearance problem.. other installations I've done have been on...

    Not if you want the Gates Center Track .. you'll probably want the 70t/22t combo to get a high enough gear ratio, and that 70t comes as 130BCD only, so you would have to ditch the 104 crank that is...

    Good you're not interested in an 8spd hub because it won't fit the Mu Uno with 120mm drop out spacing.. I've done lots of playing around with the Mu Uno through the years.. last incarnation was 2...

    Nice bike, but nasty spoke angles .. 2 cross is not recommended for that setup .. I'd have it re-laced 1x if you plan on riding it regularly..
