Hello everyone. I really didn't know if this should have went in the road bike forum or the single speed forum so I went here. I have a three speed road bike that I converted from a common sixteen speed. Basically, I have just removed the rear cogs and spaced the remaining three accordingly, set the der. limit screws to stop and the high and low gear, and am using a Shimano down tube shifter set in friction mode. It works ok, but I'm interested in learning more about an internally geared rear hub. I admit I am clueless on these as I have never seen or rode them in person. Would this be a better route for me to go? Do they operate more smoothly? Any advice, tips, prices, etc. you all can give is greatly appreciated.
