      I have a Dutch-made bakfiets with a shimano 8-speed internal rear hub.
      I have never heard about the internals not being good for weight.
      The carrying capacity of the Bakfiets is rated at 300 lbs in the front
      box and 70 lbs on the rear rack. In my view internal gearing is great
      for heavy loads because when you have to stop quickly and cannot
      downshift, you can just shift after you are stopped.
