That's a rotten thing to happen with a new bike. I wouldn't let this put you off. A multi geared hub is designed for climbing hills and should easily cope. If it doesn't there's something wrong unless you are built like the Hulk and pounding the thing uphill at 25 miles an hour. A hub should normally cope with any NORMAL amount of pedal power. You've had a bad one, maybe with a foreign body inside that broke something. I wouldn't expect that to happen again.
