We start the new year with a Traitor 3 Speed, the Luggernaut.
It’s a thing of beauty. Look forward to hearing how you get on with it.

I have to give props to Traitor for what has to be one of the coolest model names in a while.
For any SS or Internal setup on drop bars - do yourself the favor and upgrade to the SRAM single speed brake levers. They are WAY better than Tektro and have that cool pistol-grip feel. LOVE them.
Agreed and note this is a review bike—and my first day with it.
And I think there’s likely nothing stopping you from popping a Nexus hub into those sliders.
Spacing might be an issue. I skinnied my Nexus down to 124mm, so only had to spread the frame a little on my On-One Single.

@ Andrew Martin
The SRAM SS levers are at least double the price of Tektro’s excellent R200’s I think I’ll pass.
Sure they are, but they work 5x as well. I’ve had the Tektros on 3 bikes and I’m swapping them all out. They are that much better. Lever action, hand position. It’s night and day.
Yeah, still not buying it. “For the first time in ~8 years my components will not be the ‘top end’.” Call me when you start running Apex on something like a Vaya.
In general my race bikes always have good stuff on them. My Rain Bike is running ‘07 Rival, and my single speed cross/fixed is a $300 On One Pompino frameset with Tektro Oryx brakes and a Surly huh/Alex rim wheelset that I built.
Seriously though - the SRAM levers are the shit.
Usually easier, and cheaper, just to change brake pads, no?
