New Auto Shifting SRAM 2-Speed Hub
Hubstripping reader Shozo wrote in to let us know that SRAM unveiled a new 2-speed internal gear hub at the international Tapei Cycle show. As stated in this article at the Bike Europe site, it will be available in the summer of 2011 and is the same size as a single speed hub.
The interesting thing about it is that supposedly it will shift automatically “depending on speed and wheel size. So, no electronics involved; it’s an all mechanical system.”
Auto shifting? Awesome. I wonder how that works. Any thoughts?
