Having sold a 1x10 as on lonfer steep rides I needed a lower gear I have been pondering an alfine again. Input on the 11 reliability issues and whether they have been cured would be great. Anyway I have been working out the gearing and would appreciate someone saying whether I am correct in my thinking below.
Reading online it would appear that an alfine 11 has a gear spread of 408.5% and an alfine 8 has 307% would I be correct in calculating that an 11-36% cassette has a range of 227.27%?
I realise the % differences between gears will differ with the following roughly applying:
alfine 8 - 22,16,14,18,22,16,14
alfine 11 - 29 first to second, then 13% - 14%
11-36 cassette - ranging from 10.5% to 18% based on 11-13-15-17-19-21-24-28-32-36
Am I right in my thinking / calculations?
