    Very nice Seagull. Interesting spec. How are you getting on with the Alfine hub?

    The hub is ideal for me, its lighter than Rohloff, shifts well and has enough gears for what I want.

    I have an issue where it gets pulled out of the driveside under force though. I've asked Nicolai for some advice, looks like it might need longer dropouts.

    No scale...but it's under 30. Feels like most of the weight is in the rear when you pick it up, but you can't feel it when riding or jumping.
