The Alfine equipped El Mariachi is doing some road duty this spring. I still need some BB7 calipers (for the road bars and levers) to finish the bike off, so no pictures yet, sorry. I did run the thing on the trainer today and omg, what a workout I got. There was a bit of sweat on the floor to say the least, being I've geared the bike faster by 50%.

Here's a printout from Sheldon Brown, R.I.P., showing my cadence/speed for mountain, road, and a comparable road bike.
