Not so much the economics, in the end Internal Gear Hubs use a chain or belt as well. Part of it is change of pace, the other part of the thought would be to simplify the bike a bit and allow for a chain guard for Seattle area winter cycling (land o drizzle). Been rolling the cuff or tying back the pant leg for years, but that's never been that satisfactory a solution.
