I'm looking forward to how this turns out for you, jack pot

I bought a SRAM Automatix 2-speed hub in the summer of 2019 intending to build a wheel for my 1-speed bike that I bought only a couple months prior to that. The whole intention with that 1-speed bike was to make it a 2-speed almost immediately.

Here I am a year later and I like riding the single speed so much that I haven't even ordered the rim and spokes to go with the Automatix. I'm starting to think of saving it for my other bike with the Nexus 8 IGH for a backup when that one wears out. Or I should just buy a third bike, so I can finally have a 2-speed to go with my 1-speed and 8-speed.

If it wasn't for my wife being against me having a third bike taking up garage space, it would probably have already been a done deal.
