We will be getting the front and rear hubs and shifters only at this point. The Alfine 8 speed hub includes several improvements:
- Disc brake capability, using Shimano's proprietary Center-lock rotors.
- Double roller clutch engagement for smoother, quieter shifting
- Shifting power modulator for smoother shifts
We will also be getting the front dynamo hub which is disc brake compatibility and the Rapid Fire shifters. They are available in both black and silver but we have no idea what we will receive until we get them. They should arrive this week sometime.
