Which leads me to consider that a disk rotor would also be out of the question, and I would be better served to look for an alternative.

Also, can you tell me what is your chainring/rear sprocket tooth-count?

By using Sheldon Brown's calculator, set up my 451 rims, 170mm cranks, a 40T front, and a 20T rear, I would get 71.6 and 19.9 gear inches, respectively. Not bad in my opinion, but of course I have no idea yet what sprocket tooth counts are available, so I just put these is to see where my ballpark gear inches would be. I'd like to plug in your numbers to see what you came up with.
