    Have you thought more about IGH options? Im building a pompino and thinking of installing a IGH. I like the SA 2 spd "kick back" hub b/c it doesnt use a shifter so it installs clean. Ive been using various chainring-cog combos on sheldon browns gear calculator and looking like i can get a nice versatile high gear and a pretty low climbing gear combo.

    I am just building a large Pompetamine. Wondering if I should have gotten an XL. I am 5'11" with a 32" inseam. My mt bikes are 20" frames.

    2 spd

    This summer i converted my geared CX bike to SS and loved it. I ran a 65 gear-inch drivetrain which meant being on the verge of spinning out on the flats while still being able to climb low to moderate grades or varying distances. If i set up the high gear around 65 to 68 the low gear will be around 42 to 45 gear inches which might allow me to actually sit down on some climbs. We'll see though. It might suck and go down as an experiment but thats the fun of it all.

    Sizing wise, im 5' 8.5" and got a large for the 555cm ETT. Even this is a tad on the short side so im going to need to try some variations in order to use a freegle bar and get my hands as close as i can over the axle of the front wheel without messing up the handling. If i have to i can change the levers and use a midge bar i have or buy another cowbell. Ill post some pics once i get it done.

    Wow that bolt clearance on the fork is tight. Busy building up a pompetamine myself, I wonder if one can maybe use lower profile screws to make the gap a bit bigger.
