upgrading to an internal hub on a Dahon Speed P8
So, since the Downtube 8HN's sold out, I think that my next possibility of having an easily packable (and more enjoyable?) bike, would be to upgrade my '06 P8 to an 8spd internal hub... I've been reading a lot about how much people seem to enjoy the internal hubs, plus I believe that the rear wheel would be easier for me to remove/replace with the internal hub (yes?); the thing is, how would I go about doing this... the LBS here doesn't deal much with folders (I don't know if that matters in this situation?), and I'd like to keep my Big Apple tires... do I need to buy a wheel with the hub attached or just the hub?
Sorry for several posts... I enjoy riding, but I'm really an amateur. Thanks!
