QUOTE=msrfan;244091]Hey, 5-7. Are you referring to internal shifting hubs with coaster brakes? Why don't shifter kits work with them? I've got a Sachs Torpedo 2-speed hub that shifts centrifugally that I was going to try, and it has a coaster brake. It's not unlike the Bendix kick-back in performance, but is shifts by itself while you're pedalling. Let me know what yo thiink. Thanks.

Not dumb. Made you think, lol.
