I'm thinking of running an Alfine on my 29er. Right now I'm running SS 32x19. I have the stock Bontrager wheels now and will get some new ones built around the Alfine.
I do a lot of technical riding, and I do a lot of "ratcheting" to keep from hitting my pedals on rocks and such. It also comes in handy when I can't quite keep cranking on a steep climb!
I'm a bit worried about how quick the Alfine engagement is. If it's going to cause me problems with ratcheting I'd better skip it. I'm also considering a two-speed setup using a Hammerschmidt.
Thanks for any input
