Would it be possible for you to post some pics of this set-up? This gives you 21 gears, right? Or did I miss something? Does the igh have a twist shift? And the cluster have a dt or stem shifter? I realize SB(RIP) had some 63 gear crazy set-up he did for fun, but this sounds reasonable and and doable. Have been wanting to do a igh tourer for my wife, but as a Rohloff is too pricey and the Shimano doesn't have enough range for loaded touring, this may be a good compromise. Thanks alot.
