Please explain what it is like to shift with the Cyclone kit and internally geared hub.
liveforphysics wrote:whoa buddy. This one is a no-brainer. You GOTTA do the nexus hub. Gary says they hold the power fine, and for the price it cant be beat. I'm even wanting to scrap my rear wheel setup and get the nexus. Derailers and crap are a nightmare with high chain speeds, you do NOT want to play that game. Your chain will ball up on you into a nightmare everytime you stop quickly, and cause other problems.
The difference between that x9 and x7 is that one is for a 7 sprocket and one for a 9 sprocket... lol But seriously, you don't want to be playing any of that crap. All bad. Internal gears are the way to go. Don't shift anything under load. That's for douche bags with TH400's.
Yes, you can shift under load, no problem. These Nexus hubs are pretty tough. I know a guy in San Diego that uses them on chopper-style electric motorcycles with Eteks and MARS motors.
