    Looking to buy a Hybrid bike with internal gear hub please help..... I am lost

    Hello all

    I hope someone can help... I had a really nice bike i bought last yeah called a GT Transeo GTD with a 8 speed internal gear hub. I loved it.... but of course some one thought that they have to steal it.

    So my dilemma now is... I want a hybrid bike with a internal gear hub, more then 3 gears though. I cannot get the GT Transeo anymore....

    The only other bike that is a hybrid and has internal gear hub is a Schwimm but it only comes in read and white and I really hate red......

    So any one who could help and advise me where to find a Hybrid bike with a internal gear hub... I am 6.5 tall 250pound guy so needs to be decent quality.....

    Please help... links to the bike you are thinking of would be great.

    Thank you

    Soren

    Consider a Jamis 3.0 commuter, lots of handlebar/stem adjustability to fit your size.
    ride long & prosper

    I really like your second suggestion.... that Bike looks so great... but damm... it is just me but I did not think I would have to spend 1000$ on a bike. My GT Transeo GTD was a great bike for 529$. Is this brand REI so much better?

    REI isn't a brand of bike,* it's a store or, more accurately, a retail cooperative that operates a fleet of stores across the country.

    _____
    * Well, okay, REI does have a "store brand" of bikes, but it's "Novara," not "REI," and the bikes above aren't them.

    You could probably find a nice vintage Raleigh 3 speed on Craigslist for $250 or less.

    Where are you located? Are you looking to buy it in an IBD or online?
    I have a KHS Fleetwood which has the older Nexus 7-sp. with the thumb shifter which I love.
    My wife has the Breezer Uptown which is an excellent city bike. (two baby seats on it!)
    You can get the Uptown for around $800 new I think:

    If you have a decent bike shop near you, you could buy a single speed bike and have them rebuild the back wheel with the internal hub of your choice, like:
    http://www.amazon.com/i-Motion-9-Spe.../dp/B0013HM7QY

    You could probably pick this KHS up for around $600:

    If you're near Jersey City you can pick up one of these haulers at Grove Street Bicycles: (Specialized Globe)
