    Alfine questions?

    I am looking to build up an On-one pompetine with an alfine 8 in the back. My question is: what is the difference between the sgs500 and the sgs501? It seems the 500 is cheaper from my limited research. Is it a cheaper version of the 501? This project may be a long one as I need to slowly find the funds to do it. I need a good wheel set, which includes the hub, and the necessary shifters and hub pieces. I should have the rest of the stuff laying around the garage.

    Thanks for any help.

    The main difference is *some* of the 500 models does not use roller clutch, which makes it dead silent. Also, I believe there were some improvements in the dust covers. Go for the 501.

    Alfine: diff between 500 and 501 labeled hubs?
