Pictured above is a KHS Urban Soul 3-speed build, with coaster brake, and grip shifter. This build uses a Shimano Nexus internally-geared hub, with double-walled rims on front and rear wheels. Although the Nexus hub’s coaster brake works really well, we kept on a front rim brake for quicker stops and to make getting on and off the bike easier. This semi-custom build is a size large, and is for sale at $479.95.
The three-speed wheel kit mention above is available separately for $159.95 with cog and shifter included. The nice part about this hub is that it’s compatible with many different tooth-count cogs, meaning that you can dial in your gear ratio as with any single speed setup. If you’re curious if your current bike or a spare frame can be set up as an internally-geared bike, bring it on in. Our staff is always eager to chat and help with your next ambitious project.
