I've been using the surly 135 flip flop hub without any issues. I think it was about £75 3 years ago.
Some for sale on eBay!
I thought 1.9:1 was the lowest ratio recommended by shimano for the alfine. 34&22 give 1.55:1 I hope you don't tear it to bits!!
I'm running open pros with 35 cx tyres without any issues.
Just opened the Flickr account and I'm a bit of a technophobe! You should now be able to veiw the pics
Built pretty much from second hand parts. Lots of fun.
I can't see why a ramped/pinned chain ring would make any difference. Surely it's designed to help moving between the cogs when "you" decide to shift.
I coldest one of my Pomp frames to 135. Not a v4. Still going strong. Wasn't used for polo til I sold it to Newcastle Dave. Was coldest 5years ago.
