Internal-Gear Mode

The Modal is a travel bike concept that folds and toggles between single, fixed, and geared modes. This wheel was built with Nexus 8 Speed Premium "Red Band" attached to a Hed Ardennes. It’s for internal-gear mode and we’re building this up now with a drop bar.

Using drop bars?  Are you gonna use one of the work arounds like the jtek bar end shifter or the hubbub for twist grip style?  Or are you going to hack an sti system or possibly have access to the versa shifter?  I’m very interested in building up one myself with an STI/Versa shifter style for my drop bar.

Yes on drop-bars—the method is TBD.
