    Looks pretty cool.

    What do you use it for?
    I'm just here for the food.

    currently have it set up as 24T on the hammer and 18T on the Alfine. Pretty much gives me a 27 speed gear range which is nice...

    What do I use it for? ummm... riding? well, in seriousness, the plan is for it to be a 'winch up hills' then 'blast down hills' type bike It's pretty heavy, so certainly not an XC/all-day type bike

    How's this bike going? I'm planning on doing something similiar with a Hammerschmidt and the new Alfine 11 when it comes out and would like to know how your Alfine is holding up.
