Apologies if this has been done to death, or is a silly question, but I'm new here
I've been reading this article:
So I gather that using an Alfine Hub with a double chainring is possible, but is it common ? Doesn't it negate at least some of the advantages of the hub. What set-ups do people recommend ?
The reason I'm considering an internal hub is for a hardtail on which I do fairly technical but long distance rides - e.g. Pennine BW, Kielder 100. And chain suck is the bain of my life at times. I had thought that using a hub would resolve this, but now I'm not so sure.
