• I tried an Alfine 8 for a while, but didn't really get on with it. Has very indirect feel in any gear other than 5. Also had a few issues with it slipping out of gear due to tension on the shifter cable (yellow marks are meant to align, but had to have slightly more tension).

    The sheer weight of the things is quite annoying as well. The rear wheel thuds into everything in it's path.

    The new Pinion gearboxes look interesting. There is an 8 speed one that is much lighter than the previous 18 speed. Keeps all the weight centralised too.
