• I've thought for a while that internal geared hubs (IGH) are the commuting future, less maintenance, ease of use, all weather reliability and that for commuting/light touring would be the ideal compliment to a robust mudguard/rack ready frame.

    If you want it to be a 21st century machine then disc brakes are a given as well.

    But apart from the genesis day one alfine 8spd, I haven't seen many off the peg bikes that fit that description.

    Questions that come to mind are why aren't there more out there? And if my Google fu is weak what are they?

    Also think of this as a space for all things IGH, so feel free to post up any and all bikes which fit in...
