Nice write up. How is the gearing as is? Pretty typical for cruiser or slightly higher for climbing?

What's the width on the rear hub? Is it 135 or 170mm?

Nevermind, I should have read closer. I see that it's 170mm. Too bad. If it was 135mm, I was thinking this could be converted to a geared townie with a nexxus hub

just use the 3speed hub from sturmey archer... ist the same gearing to the nexus 3 speed... set the fist gear for climbs and the rest will fit pretty fine...

btw the saddle makes a huge difference.. just appearance wise, the bike looks way better without that cruiser saddle

Nay! Nay, say I!
How is this any better than the $129 "mountain bikes" that they sell at Walmart?
I wouldn't trust riding it off a 5" curb.
+1!

How sealed is the rear hub? I've never seen a nicely sealed SS coaster brake hub. Have fun rebuilding it every few months.

Widening a alfine 35 mm is easy from what I uderstand, and it is a steel frame so cold setting it in a bit wouldn't be a problem either. Next paycheck I'm gonna own one.
