    I am very interested in trying your hub geared commuter bike Fairfax FC4, I am in Holbury near Southampton though, would that be a problem to deliver so far ???

      Hi Jim, really sorry for the delay on this. That Fairfax is now sold out; we are offering the SC2 IG 2017, however: https://www.edinburghbicycle.com/marin-fairfax-sc2-ig-17

      We would be able to sort out delivering to you and you can return if you don’t like it, however there would be a cost involved with postage. Please contact our Online Team on 0345 257 0808 if you’d like us to look into it 🙂

    Hi All, i have two internal gear hubs, one Nexus 8 used, and one new Alfine Electro change type bought in error, they are both stripped down and may have some components missing, and are of no use to me now, so im looking for anyone who can take them off my hands as i would not like to throw them out.
    Im willing to post anywhere at my cost.

    While the basic Nexus is quite good, you may wish to look at their next grade up, the red stripe. The better quality bearings reduce drag quite a lot.

    A down side is the shifter only fits 22.2 size bars. I converted to a trekking (aka butterfly) bar on my commute frame to accommodate the shifter. Very happy with the result.

    Shame you didn’t have any hub geared, belt driven bikes in stock when I was looking for a new commuter bike a few weeks back.

    Ended up getting a Cube Hyde Race from another retailer (though I wish they’d been able to get hold of the 11 speed Editor).
