    Looking for SRAM Automatix 2-Speed Hub in Canada

    I've recently converted an older 12-speed into a single speed bike, and have been having a blast riding around. I just removed all the derailleur and shifter setups, and locked my chain onto the 40/18 gear set. It's almost a perfect straight shot, so it's quiet, smooth, and quite nice for riding around on. But it would be nice to clean it up a bit.

    I see the SRAM Automatix has two things that would be nice... A second gear, for a little more range, and a coaster hub, which would let me remove another clincher brake set and associated cabling.

    I can't for the life of me find a source in Canada where I can buy one though. Do I have to order online from the US, or does anyone here know where I could find one? I'm looking for a 36 hole coaster setup, not freewheel. Any help appreciated!

    Not in Canada, but Jenson is a great place for Canadians to order from.

    I've seen Jenson mentioned before... What makes them good for Canadians to order from? Good prices? Shipping via USPS (to avoid exorbitant brokerage)?

    What your cart says is the exact price you pay. No extra fees, no brokerage. Fast shipping, pretty good prices, good customer service, on-the-ball with tracking numbers.
    Great place to deal with; every time.

    It's rare to see a US company treat us Canucks so well.
