    those internal hubs are cool around hear you just don't see them anymore i have a shamino 3 speed that i laced to a 26 2.125 rim for my rat ride and i am currently having a bendix yellow band 2 speed laced to the same size rim for my 1954-56 schwinn straight bar. i believe the hub came off a tandem so i am putting a thicker grade spoke on it something like 1.05 my local bicycle shop repair man said it would be close to the size of motor cycle spokes. how true that will be is yet to be seen. i like the internal gears i just don't like all the wires i like my bicycles to look regular with that hidden aspect and i think thats very cool
