    Qr alfine on whyte bike

    I have just fitted an alfine on my whyte preston full suspension bike ,,

    as the whyte has a system called big gripper which locks a 20 mm axle in with an over center catch the normal anti rotation devices wouldn't work so each side now has a strip of steel clamped onto the axle which rests on a bolt to take the torque from the hub

    early days but seems good

    the JW4 with the alfine is also a single speed,,,, and original single pivot with gears and the very first protoype is hanging on the wall in the garage actualy it's cut into 2 bits dont know what happened to the two handbuilt prototypes we made and destroyed at one of the 24hour races

    Ade, i am thinking of the exact same conversion on my Whyte E5 with big grippers. Is there any possible way i could get a few photos of your set up in relation to the anti rotation plates you have put on? And maybe a bit of a description?
