    The crankset is irrelevant. As above, if you want to use SRAM shifters, you must use a SRAM rear derailleur. You should be able to retain the Shimano front derailleur you have on the bike now.

    I think some of the early mountain bike experiments combined a 5-speed freewheel and a 3-speed hub for ultra-low gears. It also resulted in some exploded Sturmey-Archer hubs- they weren't built for...

    No. SRAM shifters are not compatible with Shimano derailleurs. You could install them if you changed to a SRAM rear derailleur.

    I have no problems with my Shimano flat-bar shifters, but that...

    That's good for me. I have size 13, B-width feet. I should need to rent skis if the vision of putting me on skis didn't look like a Warner Brothers cartoon.

    Love to, but I've never found stretchy shoe covers that fit my size 13's. (Loose "rain" covers whap-whap-whap against the cranks. Annoying.) Even the XXL insulated show covers are too tight,...

    I stand (sit) corrected. My experience is limited to rear-wheel-drive and twist-chain FWD recumbents. The moving-bottom-bracket type of FWD recumbent is a whole 'nother kettle of monkeys. I would...

    No, you need to use the correct bottom bracket length for your cranks. According to Sheldon, this would be either a 107mm or 113mm length spindle.
