    The sort of hub you're thinking of is...

    That's more likely to be your technique, you're letting your feet fall behind the pedals during the slack part of the circuit then taking up the tension as you put on the power. You'll get used to it...

    Make sure you get square wheels, the round ones have a bad habit of rolling backwards when you stop on a hill :)

    I loathe those things too. I find the trick is to get your toe in and then wriggle your foot sideways to work it into the strap proper. A better option would be if I stopped being so cheap and bought...

    Have a guess at the gearing you want.
    Fit the tyres you want to use.
    Ride your bike.
    If you feel as though you want to change your gearing, change it.
