    I run all my IGH bikes with a slight, barely noticeable droop in the chain. Have never once thrown a chain on any of them. The ideal tension is no tension.

    Even when the Canadian dollar trades at par, we pay much more here for the same bike as they do south of the border. The current exchange rate make it even worse. I doubt the same bike would be 10k...

    I have a Sturmey Archer 8 speed in a 700c wheel bike. With a 30/25 chainring/cog ratio, it gives me about a 32.5 inch low gear. Not too bad if the hills are not real serious.

    So what about the people who want the logos removed wherever possible? I have a couple of customers that request that on every build.

    Going all out in high gear at 80 rpm, you are not developing very much torque, so the hub is not likely to be damaged.
    On the other hand, in first gear, no shift pawls are engaged, so no torque is...

    The cup with the left hand thread goes on the drive side. The tube was probably stuck in that one when new in the box, but it doesn't matter which cup it is stuck in. It will be stuck in both cups...
