spacing of 3 speed/7 speed hubs

Can you run an internally geared 3 speed or 7 speed wheel on a regular roadbike. I want thinking about doing this to the bike I commute on (road bike converted to single speed)
Thanks for your help.

It is certainly possible! As in many other things, Sheldon Brown is an excellent place to start:

This shows his 8 speed Shimano Nexus conversion:

He has another bike converted to 7 speed Shimano internal hub:

If you check out his main site (www.sheldonbrown.com) he has loads of articles about upgrading older bikes, about internal hub gears.... you name it!
