    Had a similar problem with a pair of Schwalbe Marathon Greenguards. Replaced both with Kojaks. But taking them off the rim was a painful experience for my thumbs.

    80 minutes.

    You could also purchase the 820mAh battery (I believe fit it in yourself) and get around 2hrs of recording time.

    I have the SJ1000 and Mobius camera.

    Both have excellent video quality even in low light.

    The Mobius is perfect for mounting on the helmet.

    Sorry you are right. I'd forgotten that a rear derailleur would cause the chain to slip to the smallest cog if tension was lost. IGHs do the same but are perhaps more sensitive to the tension.

    Unlike derailleurs, internal gear hubs operate on cable tension and so are very sensitive to it.

    As mentioned before, my 7 speed hub had the same trouble, but I'd already done about 200km before...

    Thanks for the advice. I shall look at the crank carefully then.



    Thanks and noted.

    My planned gearing is 26 to 85 gear inches. This is alright for the commuting purpose.
