Hi everybody!

I have a Riese and Muller Load with a Bosch gen 2 motor and Nuvinci hub. The Bosch cogs are a available in 1/8" width but Nuvinci says to only use 3/32. It seems like 1/8 would last longer and looking at the Nuvinci, there's plenty of clearance for a wider chain. Does anyone know what the issue is? And has anyone tempted fate by installing a 1/8 cog on the Nuvinci?

Cheers,
Ryan
