    3- to 6-spoke wheels for IGHs

    Are there any 3- to 6-spoke wheels for IGHs like 8-speed Alfine/Nexus or Rohloff?
    Could be 7 or 8 spokes too.

    Here is a poll:
    Would you be interested in a 26" wheel (for on-road use) that can take an IGH?
    If so, please post "Yes"

    I have no plans to make/sell you one--if there is sufficient interest, I can pass the info to some manufacturer.

    I think it would be possible to design a wheel like this around an Alfine 8 speed as the non drive side spoke flange is pressed on with a splined interface and easily removed.

    I am aware of one wheel that can take IGHs.

    Gocycle | Lightweight Electric Bike | E Bike | Electric Bicycle
    Gocycle has a 5-spoke 20" wheel with 3-speed Nexus IGH. The rear wheel is attached to the bike on the drive-side.
