Re: Kim

Hello Kim. Sounds like you'll be interested in the Nuovella model from Opus. It features a 7-speed Shimano internal gear hub, drum brakes, full chainguard, and skirt guard. Read our review here:

Why doesn't this have an internal hub?

If this had a 7 or 8 speed internal hub, they'd have my money so fast my wallet would burn. Why a derailleur? Seriously? On the website the ad copy for this bike is all about the hardcore sell to the slow bike crowd and yet... derailleur. Can't shift at a stop, more difficult to manage when loaded down with panniers (as I like to haul.)
Really too bad.
And they'll kill this half-hearted attempt and not try again because "the consumer just doesn't get it" when it's them who totally missed the heart of the matter.
