    I think it depends on the hubs in question, but from what I know of them, they are heavier, but require less maintenance. And some can be shifted while not pedaling.
    "Normal" is just a setting on a washing machine.

    We have a 10 year old Electra with a Nexus 7 that we store outside. The bike's covered in rust but the hub works fine.

    I had one on a Black Phantom repop

    No long term testing as i had the bike for about a year (had to sell to pay for medical bills). Only put about 100 miles on it but it worked well. I have a 3 speed on another bike that also works well although a little slow when upshifting. I still prefer my dr equpped bikes for serious rides but like the 3 speed for casual outings.

    I'd be curious to know what kind of bike as $100 might be a real good price.

    My wife has a Raleigh with a Nexus 7. As long as the grade isn't over 2% it does fine.
    You can further the brotherhood of man by eliminating class.
    You can lift the wage earner up by equalizing earnings.
    You can bring about prosperity by overturning the holders of power.
    You can strengthen the weak by eating the the strong.
    You can help the poor by destroying the rich.
