    does anybody know what rear (cable-operated) brakes will work with a worksman and a shimano nexus 7-speed internal hub? I can't use a coaster brake because I have a jackshaft kit.

    i thought the nexus 7 had an optional rollerbrake,.. if you dont have the hub yet,... sturmey archer makes a nice 8 speed internal gear hub with a very effective drum brake (matching front drum brake hub also)

    Thanks. Turns out I'm going to be going with the nexus and th roller brake b/c the s/a will probably not be able to accommodate the11ga worksman spokes
    Thanks for the tip. :)
