Though one day I do gotta try the sbp shift kit. So I'll need at least one more multi-speed one day. When I do, though, I think it's likely to be the electric. That just looks like about the best electric set-up I've ever seen.
Just do like I do to some of my multispeed wheels and put a single speed freewheel sprocket on in place of the cassette.
Here is a link to where I get mine on ebay.
Of course you dont have to go with a 22T, but I like them since they give a much easier to pedal gear ratio with a 44T crank sprocket, but an 18T works just as well if you use a 36T crank sprocket.
There are several sellers on ebay that have these, I just usually get mine from either China or Hong Kong since they're cheaper that way And Im usually not in that big of a hurry for them.
