I did the GAP/C&O last summer - late July, early August. It was pretty wet, which apparently was unusual for that time of year. If you have hybrid/CX bike with tires as wide as you mentioned you'll...

If someone else put it in the recycling bin, then he took it out and took it home, that sounds like stealing from the company. Then he posts it publically. What could happen? Maybe he could get fired.

I'm not exactly sure what you're asking about or looking for, but Sturmey Archer makes a (standard) three speed hub with a freehub for an 8/9/10 speed Shimano casette. Would that be helpful for you?
