Default Re: rear suspension #2

Haha freeway!!! LOL!! . I'd like to build something comfy enough to ride to the races... 450mi from here.... You know... Road trip...

The hardtail made my back ache after 50mi days.

Dunno about the nexus but you won't have engine braking with it. The sturmey s3x you will and it's a 60% jump from first to top gear.

With the 60 it will be 5:1 at the engine but then you will overdrive it to the hub. Maybe a 11 instead of the 24 that will give 9 in nexus direct drive.
I don't always listen to Alice in Chains..... but when I do, SO DO THE NEIGHBORS
