REI is having their 20% off sale and I'm looking at the Novara Fly By. I like the fact that it has a seven speed internal hub because I worry about deraulliers getting knocked around when it will be carried, shipped or just put in my trunk. I'll probably drive up to the nearest REI next week to see it, but I'd love to hear any opinions you might have, particularly if you own one. The web site has specs but no reviews.
Also...Does anyone know the gear inch equivalents for the 7 speed shimano internal hub with a 46t chainring? I'd like to compare to my deraullier bikes to determine if I'll make it up hills or not.
