    This might be a stupid question, but I'm sort of new to this.

    When buying a hub, do you have it laced with the rest of your wheel at your LBS?

    I want to build an internal geared bike, but don't really know where to start. I'm just reading as much as I can right now. Truthfully my LBS just tries to sell me whats on the floor, not really helpful at all.

    Kris Holm / Schlumpf Innovations Internally Geared Unicycle Hub (on Kris Holm 24" Off Road Unicycle). Two gears: 1:1 and 1:1.5. That is in 1:1.5 gear one complete revolution of the cranks turns the wheel 1 1/2 times. Shift on the fly by tapping the mushroom buttons wear the cranks attach to the hub. Right side button is the up-shift (1:1.5), left side button is the down shift (1:1 gear). Super fun!

    When buying a hub, do you buy a wheel as well & have the LBS lace it up?

    I'm doing research now to build my own 1x8 bike. I don't want to buy parts that won't work together. How did you guys learn all this? Trial and error?

    People do it different ways. Some do everything through the LBS, some get parts and take the rest of the job to the LBS, some do everything at home. I think what you do depends on how much you know, how much you want to spend, and your relationship with your LBS.

    In my alfine install, my experience went like this:

    -Bought a wheel already laced up with an Alfine hub (did this because the price I got on it was less than the generally-accepted price for an Alfine hub alone)
    -Was going to get the rest of the parts through my LBS (Small parts kit, cog, shifter) but had some PayPal gift certificates and used those toward those parts.
    -Took my bike and the parts to my LBS, and had them set everything up, paid the labor, done.

    Whether the parts work together depends on what hub you're going to use. You'll need a compatible shifter for your hub. You'll need a frame with the correct spacing for the hub you intend to use, and if you're going to get a hub laced up, you need to make sure you're getting the correct size rim for your application.

    I'm sure there's a lot there that I didn't say, but I'm relatively a n00b myself, and that's what I gathered through lots of searching here, Google, and bikeforums.net.

    MUni!

    Here's my custom internal hub MTB, or rather MTU!

    Goodies include:

    Schlumpf/Kris Holm Mountain Unicycle 2 speed hub (1:1, 1:1.5)
    custom milled dual hole cranks
    custom handlebar
    Magura HS33 brake
    Speedplay Drillium pedals
    tubeless Duro 3.0"
    KH frame

    I've also had the Schlumpf hub in a 29" and 36". Having it in the 24" is by far the most fun for off road riding, love it!

    I will throw up a pic with hub in the future, I can't seem to delete the photo I thought was going to be one with all the shifters and junk.

    Alfine + Schmit = Interesting

    Thats a lot of chain to have dangling around... would you not be better off with different tensioner?

    I sold the Trance and got two 29ers, one is a rigid SS which is what I’m using as a winter bike now. The Alfine was great, I just didn’t like 26in wheels any more...

    My new to me 2005 Gary Fisher Rig... Now with added Alfine of course...





    Bought the bike a few weeks ago (pretty much stock GF Rig SS), junked the brakes and fitted Shimano, then bought the Alfine hub and got building... Shifter finally turned up after a delay this morning, so fitted it all and just taken it for a spin up and down the road to check it all works! Can't wait to get it offorad...
