    HI,

    Looks interesting BUT you can do the same thing by running a disc brake hub wheel and one of our Super Sprockets with or without the Top Hat Sprocket Adapter.

    As a side benefit you can retain the use of all your gears whereas the wheel in the pic seems to only allow the rider 1 speed in the rear.

    System can be used with OR without a disc rotor / disc caliper

    Hope this helps.

    Andrew

    PS - Not sure about price differences BUT shopping for a rear wheel from a Shop like Performance bicycles can get you a rear wheel for
    about $70, re use you old tire / tube and gears, add the sprocket and/or Top Hat and you should be good to go for less....and possibly better quality (have not see the wheel you speak of in person but if it is using the Grubee hub you can look for reviews on it)

    Not sure if you can get Worksman down there, but they have a nice heavy duty wheel. Double thickness, 11g spokes.

    getting a good wheel with a disc brake mount and using one of Andy's sprockets would probably be the best way to go imo.
