Need some help making a decision here...
I have a mountain bike and I have been interested in these internal gear hubs but I really don't understand the gearing mumbo jumbo. From reading the forum for the last 45min I think I want either the N360 or the Alfine SGS501 8 speed, but I do not know because I don't understand the gearing information too well.
I like my 21 speeds fine, it give me a good low low and I could use maybe a bit higher high for road driving but it is ok as is. I got a 7 gear rear hub and I drive trails with rocky muddy stretches water crossings loose gravel and dirt. Not a lot of hills but I do hit the occasional climb.
Which one is going to last? How will the gears compare to what I am running? (I don't know my specific tooth counts and what not but I am pretty sure it is a department store bike with standard out of box gearing and kit) Any options I am over looking?
Thanks for the help.
