it would feel more like pedaling a 44-16, cause you dont have to put a lot of power into it every time you crank.

i ordered a hub from a bike shop once. do you have any idea how inflated their prices are? its insane. and to answer your question, they will call you on the day that the part(s) actually come in.

Most of the time, its cheaper to just order online, but sometimes it's about supporting your LBS.
