alfine 11 price

D: 307 pounds sans shifter.
That's um..
Um US about x1.5 so... um call it 450.
A bit more Canadian.
Of course, with shifter, this goes well about 500.

Still a fraction of the price of a Rohloff.
D: hmm electric pushbutton R-hub shifter.
Neat. Pointless, but neat.
Now if it was AUTOMATIC like a car...
D: good reviews though. For Shimano type.

D: the NuVinci lends itself to automatic adjustment.

shimano alfine 11 gear sg-s700

It tripped my Google search term alert.

5th gear is direct drive- I think.
VERY nice for a day tour bike!
Yup. I'm in love.
Waiting on price.

You heard it hear FIRST.
