I would leave the Nexus hub in and not worry about it.
What do the drop out sit at naturally. It may well have been adjusted for it or just been happily running that hub on there for some time not worrying about itself.
Find a neater way to do the cabling or at least some colour coded tie wraps



apparently its been on there for years and years so i'm not sure that its causing any problems the hub was recently serviced so the bike shop would have said something about the frame being too small for it (wouldn't they ?)

whats 10mm between friends ??

120 is standard track bike width, so plenty of options. It's clearly been happy with the Nexus, though, so you could leave that in and tidy the cable routing as suggested.

loving your Humu looks nice mate

I'm more and more thinking the Nexus has been on there so long that it really deserves just to be left on there really if it was going to cause issues they would have arisen already

Yeah i think the Nexus will stay where it is love the 7 speed and the pedal back brake so why fix something that's not broken so to speak if i'm bored one day i might grind a few mm off the spacers on the hub that will reduce the 130mm to about 125mm and whats 5mm between friends

Nice Humuhumu. This is a frame from the top of my wishlist too. I'd like to have one only because of it's name... :D

Congrats to you and I'll follow this thread excitedly. :)

Awesome, still want one myself.

Winds me up that the current Humu cruiser is known as the HumuHumu... Isnt that like, half a fish? Makes no sense. Maybe Kona are cutting back on their graphics budget.

Here's mine:

http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... mu&start=0

It's not moved on much from there, currently a frame/fork/headset/seatpost and rear wheel.

Enough people saying they want one to almost tempt me to sell it :roll:
