I know there are a few people here on the forum using front mechs and either two or three rings upfront - was just wondering how they were going and what ratios are you working to.

I have experimented with an 8 speed hub and a 20T (40-32-22), (42-38-26) and now currently trying out, on an 8 speed hub 18T (44-36-22).

The price difference between the 11 speed and the 8 speed is quite a jump and the Speedhub with it's nicely spaced 14 speeds will not allow me to fit a rotor of my choice (and an even bigger price jump).. feedback would be interesting to read - I ride 40% road and 60% semi-agressive off road.
