I had been thinking of a Rolhoff , but I can't afford a new one :cry: . And second jobbies are few and far between :roll: .

The new Alfine is out in Sept , 11 speed too and is to be priced resonably (£300)

I'm looking to build a "lifebike" so it may well be the best course of action as everything is sealed away from the gloop .

Love the SRAM stuff at the moment , the XO mech has the look of a Joes mech and ano'ed too really cool ! But the mud around here is very , very abrasive and full of salt too , so I'm thinking the less external moving parts the better .

But I also love the clean lines of S/S or hubbies .

I thought I would post this just to see what you my esteemed Compardries thought .

Dont forget may 6th is the last day for voting !

Pete .
