You going to the shop? that's F.W.Evans in London .. like the steel Framed bike better?
you can ask them to replace the rear wheel with an internal gear hub one . they are parts that are replaceable.
Point of sale is the best time to do that, as the shop knows they are new parts,
because they just took them out of the shipping box, themselves.
If you're in the North and not wanting to travel to the City , ask over the phone..
they are also different wheel sizes, the steel frame is built around a smaller wheel diameter.
I assume you are short , the frame sizes are small in both bikes listed. both offer 17" ,
alloy one a shorter 15", the steel 2nd size is larger a 19".. good to maybe 5'6" ?
