Iv had enough of doing loops deciding whether to buy the 8sp hub or the 11sp hub for my new mtb build - so will someone please make the decision for me....!
Setup will be 32x22 for the steep hills where I ride (fixed).
Pros and cons as far as I can see them
better reliability (from what I have read)
No Torque upper limit (from what I have heard)
will run out of gears very quickly with my setup
No oil bath
will run out of gears a bit less quickly
oil bath (this makes sense to me)
More efficient (I dont know if this is true or not??)
unreliable?? (from what I have heard)
Upper limit to the torque they will take - and I will exceed it.
why does it state in the Alfine 11 spec "Helical internal sprockets increase durability, perform better with high torque loading and provide a constant engagement for a smooth and quiet operation "
so if it performs better with high torque loading how come it has an upper limit when the Alfine 8 doesn't ??
