comment What is the simplest way to lower the gearing on my touring bike?
@Daniel, I don't; the specs above are the best I've been able to find (i.e., no model numbers for individual components). It does seem to match the curve of the 52-tooth chainring quite well.

I'd love to see a similar roundup for other hubs!

there do exist road derailleurs which work on MTB gearing, but they can be hard to find

There are a small number of “road” derailleurs which can handle a mountain crankset, but you’re correct that it’s much easier to find a mountain derailleur. I've proposed an edit to your answer to moderate the claim, but otherwise +1.

@mosh: interesting — would you add those as an answer to my question? I don’t want to threadjack yours. :)

comment Converting crankset from 28-38-48 to 30-39-53
Sadly it's not quite so simple... :) a key problem I have is that MTB derailleurs are not compatible with my road brifters, and finding a road derailleur which can handle < 50T on the large ring is tricky.

It's sounding like the answer is "no"; if nobody else puts that as an answer soon, I'll do so and accept it.

@Mac, doesn't the lever in the adapter account for that?

I think it'd be fine in a flatter part of the world (it was just right in Minneapolis). Even the newer version has a pretty similar setup, though the crankset is smaller to start, making my mod easier: jamisbikes.com/usa/thebikes/pdfs/12_aurora.pdf
