If I can just get all these other chores behind me, I'll be going down the path of learning to build a wheel.
It has a coaster brake . For what I paid for the wheelset , and what theyíre asking for the hub on Amazon , itís like Iím getting the wheels for around $25 .
Iím hoping the low gear is lower than the single speed that came on my Electra 1 . I want to be able to spin out around 5-7mph in low . Thatíll help me on the hills around here that have been messing up my knees lately.
Iíll be watching for a review of that Automatix 2-speed .
