10780Re: [rootsradicals] An Interesting Hybrid Drivetrain
- Feb 1, 2010At one time, I ran a recumbent trike with a 3 speed Shimano hub, an 8 speed cogset and a triple crank. I really have no idea any more what the number of gears was, but I had about any combination you could ask for, from very very low (about .7-1) to a really high gear and lots of overlapping steps in between. It is somewhat interesting to mess with this kind of thing. It has some real possibilities. My set up was not anywhere near "perfect" really, but I did have the gearing I needed to do anything I wished.

Take a look at the drivetrain on the Jamis Commuter 4. This is the only current hybrid drivetrain on a factory bike I am aware of. It uses a Shimano Alfine hub, Shimano dual idler chain tensioner and 34/48 chainrings with a front derailleur.
It is not installed on a longtail but I do not see why it could not be duplicated by someone who wants a IGH setup with a wider range than the Alfine provides.
