    does anyone use an internal geared rear hub for cyclocross ?

    or are they too heavy or improperly spaced ?

    it seems like a 3 speed could offer :
    a granny gear
    a gear which equals your fixed -single speed.
    and 1 gear for any downhill or higher speed section.

    The idea isnt bad. I like the thought of a low maintenance drivetrain that mud cant easily effect.

    Are there any options that work with brifters?

    I think the 8sp Alfine can be use with Microshift brifters, I know there's pics somewhere of that.
