Default 3 speed internal hub

i picked up a nirve cannibal , it has a 24 inch wheel with a 3 inch fat tire .
after taking the hub apart where the coaster brake goes ,there is no way i can use this hub , after debating on what to do i went with a 26 inch rim coaster brake . . now i dont have to worry about clearance issues and i can just carry one spare tube.

Default Re: 3 speed internal hub

My orange test bike started life as a three speed. I switched to 26" front wheel and a twenty inch rear coaster wheel. My wheels were 27" and very narrow is why I switched them both.

The frame itself is very lightweight which has made it ideal for testing engines. I have to pick it up off the ground a lot. Engines tend to pull it over.

If I ran across another one I would buy it without question and junk the wheels.
