TerraTrike (TT) lists the gear inches for their various model configurations on this website. Interestingly, while they list the the size of the front sprocket for both Sturmey Archer (SA) and Sram, they provide no info for those of us with the superior, IMHO, Shimano Nexus (SN) IGH.
I recently picked up a TT Traveler, and it came with Sram i8 internally geared hub (IGH). In the year that I have been involved with this forum, I have seen numerous postings involving the Nexus (SN) i8 IGH, and for the SA i8 IGH - But I can't remember a single mention of the Sram IGH. Can anyone speak to the comparative difference between all three IGHs, or at least the Sram IGH? Are they as good as the SA? Are they as robust as the SN hubs?
I hope to put a Patterson on the Traveler and a triple sprocket up front. Anyone see a problem with this setup? Or maybe offer another affordable solution to increase my gear inch range?
TT specifications for the Traveler i8 (Sram), include a 20-62 gear inch range, The SA has a 25-80 gear inch range. Can anyone tell me what the stock Rover with a Nexus IGH would have come with when new in 2014?
And finally, does anyone want to sell a good working Paterson crank set?
