5862Re: my chain skips
- Aug 2, 2008I 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.
