Shimano Alfine Upgrade


With 11-speeds and a full 409% gear range, the Shimano Alfine internal hub has all the range most riders require to pedal up the steepest hills and quickly accelerate on flat pavement. Gears shift using a fast mechanical trigger thumb shifter mounted on the handlebar.

Grease-free, maintenance-free and whisper-quiet – it's the perfect complement to the Gates belt drive that you already know and love.

Note: A new wheel will be built around your selected hub. This wheelset and associated parts can be shipped directly to you, or a bike shop of your choice for installation.  We would be happy to recommend a trusted shop in your area.
