    I was really unhappy with a Nexus 8 which failed. A $2 retaining clip in the hub broke and Shimano basically told me to shove it and buy a new unit, they quit making the part. So I bought a new...

    Do have any idea how complicated this question can become? Obviously not, you asked it. I have a road bike, which I use only for club rides these days, the backup for that is a nice hybrid which I...

    Those weights are not in the ballpark for the N360, and the complaints I am hearing don't compare with the product I am using.

    I've had an old TREK since the mid eighties and used it for everything until I could afford a larger stable.
    They work for just about anything, enjoy it. I still use mine for club rides.

    Oh, why didn't you ask about helmets, Grant Peterson or cleaning chains? Get ready for godknowswhat. Read the side of the tire. Live with it.

    I have been using my N360 for several years, year 'round, without the issues you describe. It is 1-2 pounds heavier than Shimano, Sram, Rohloffs or all the stuff it replaces for traditional gear. ...

    This looks like a big winner to me. One big plus is that the Southwest Chief has baggage service there, and if the field test on Amtrak's new baggage cars works out, there may be roll on service for...

    I was thinking of using one to build up a new commuter for my son. I would opt for the Nuvinci N360 just because I had a bad experience with Shimano and their 8sp IGH. I have been using a Nuvinci...

    I agree with you about the lasik surgery, it's the greatest thing ever. I just wish I could have gotten the infra-red night vision zoom lens option. Your problem with cataracts at night intriqued...
