Your LBS can get either from QBP. The I-Motion is about twice the cost and weight of the Nexus.neal_b said:Is there a source in the US for either of these groups.
Looking to build a commuter bike w/ internal gear and dynamo hubs.
The best review I've read on them is here: http://www.velovision.com/mag/issue29/vv29hubgears.pdfkapalama said:Anyone see any English Langauge reviews of this anywhere? I have seen the German reviews, but I don't speak it.
An lbs has the coaster brake version i-drive in stock, but I'm assuming you want the disc brake version since Harris Cyclery has a coaster.UN-COG-KNEE-TOE said:anyone have any information on WHERE to BUY an I-Motion 9 Hub NOW?

THANKS - NICE POSTING - and GREAT Pics, Nice build up too... can you please post another shot or 2 showing the Downtube and Chain stay Cabling, i would like to see how you handed the Shift Cable routing on your FRAME ...Harris Cyclery is OUT of Stock on those DISC Hubs NOW... wish i moved sooner!pursuiter said:I bought this one from Harris last month, must have been one of their last. Just got it up a running today. Still need to built the Dynamo wheel and LED light system. A little iM9 porn:
I would, but right now it's plain nasty. The pre-made cable is 12" too long and it looks stooopid. I need to figure out how to shorten it....UN-COG-KNEE-TOE said:...i would like to see how you handed the Shift Cable routing on your FRAME...
Thanks .....I understand - so Your Frame has NO DISC Tab, which Brake are you going to Run in the REAR?pursuiter said:Thanks for the kind words, it's been fun making my ultimate commuter. Still have the head lamp project and the enclosed chain guard to go

Yeah, there is a PDF on Sram's website. It's pretty straight forward, but does require the precise measurement of cable.pursuiter said:Nate, great post. I've only got ~10 miles on it, I am loving it.
Question: do you know how to shorten the cable?
