Herę is the gearing i wanted



Hello.

I have the seam idea and so a few questions:

1) The Shmiano Nexus is with Model and it has a "back break"?
2) have you a photo of the hub-holder and how do you have fit it to the frame?
3) How many cogs have the 2Gear to transfer to the main axe, the gear on the main ae is the original or?
3b) where have you got this Gear and how do you fixed to the hub?
4) How many cogs have the gear from the Hub, I can get them from 16 to 23dents.
 
So far my first doubts :-).

Best regards.
Thorsten

Hi there it did have a back break but I took it off as it would not work as it was a back brake .
Regarding the fixing the hub to the frame I used a flat piece of metal as wide as the inside frame drilled and bolted it to the fram so it would not move two slots cut out to fit the hub axle c
I got the 8 speed hub off a bent wheel.
The drive cog was welded to the hub .
I will try and send some photos to you ..
Can you send me your email address
Bye Chas

Hello Chas,

Thank you for the information and photo.

my mail is t.hochstadt(AT)gmx.de

Where get you the gear cog for the transmission and how do you soldering it?
The metal profile that you us you made yourself and its witch metal (seems to be 3mm thick or?)
Why did you mount the hub from down in the holder, from Up the hub can’t fall down and I think the holder work better or?

Best regards.
Thorsten
