    and I can report that the brakes are adequate for the speeds I'm attaining although I wouldn't mind a disc on the front. The handling is also fine, not twitchy at all, very stable.

    Had the electric kit on for awhile now. Is it safe to say that I own the fastest Mercier Nano on the planet? It does 35mph for about 30 miles.

    Here's mine, but give me a few weeks and it's going to get even better. Sorry if it offends anyone, but this is what I'm using as the base for my electric bike. Just waiting on the kit to arrive.

    The Retroshift are probably a bit spendy for what they are, but they are the only ones doing what they're doing. I plopped down on a set of CX-1's for my drop bar 3-speed and love them. Was worth...

    I have a similar gear setup on my road bike, but I use a 50/36 with the 11-32 cassette. That configuration gives me some half-steps where a 50/34 would give you redundant ratios.
