Burritos and 3-speeds

So....just found out that everyone's favorite burrito spot (let the "my burrito spot that no-one else knows about is way better" begin) Papalote has a second location at Fulton and Masonic. Had no idea! This changes everything. The map below shows where burritos can be found.

Also, the Sturmey Archer 3-speed shifter we put up on the site a couple days ago is selling quite well. We have also been getting emails to increase our internally geared lineup, and maybe offer hubs by themselves. We have had our IGGY wheelset around for a while; it uses the S-RF3 hub, which is a 3 speed non-coaster model that we like a lot. It has solid engagement, a good looking finish, and the standard gear spread. We have been lacing them up to a 36-hole box section rim of ours with our track hub up front. The rims look good on a variety of bikes, and more and more people are looking (especially in hilly areas like we have here) for a little versatility while maintaining a clean aesthetic.

Anyway, this brings us to our question for you all, which is: what other hubs would you like to see us carry? 3-speed coaster? 5-speed? Drum brake hubs? Let us know!
