I've heard of this, but I was reluctant to recommend it without having tried it myself. The resistance to shifting between 4&5 that they refer to simply represents the ring-gear shift within the hub, and is not a result of the shifter setup. All-in-all, it looks to be pretty sweet...

I did this last year with a shimano 8 speed and a Nexus 8and it works great. All you have to do is mount a inline travel agent (achieve the right cable pull), on the chain stay. I also ended up not using the cable guide on the nexus 8 to achieve a strait cable line from the travel agent to the hub.

I fabbed up a holder out of some scrap steel I had in my garage. If you weld, this could be a solution...





I don't have any pics of the adapter before it was installed but I can MS Paint something if you'd like.
