Screw Door County, get land in the Leelenau!

Regardless, I like SSFG for commuting, but I get pretty tired of it quickly on longer commutes, especially if I'm doing it every single day. I don't know if you have any hills, but only REALLY flat ground seems worth it to go SSFG for longer commutes.

I think the IGH is a great way to go, and I think I would have a Rohloff if I had the cash. I'm actually thinking about selling my truck, buying a Rohloff and putting the rest into a few ETFs or well balanced mutual funds for some long term growth.

I'd like a light, custom frame to go with it, but that will come second. I think you can get a pretty good fit with an off the shelf frame (like an IRO Rob Roy!) and careful attention to your stem, handlebars, seat, cranks, etc...

So, get the hub.
