Looking for an 7-8 speed internal hub bike that would be used for light touring or randonnuring events.

Does anyone know if there is such a bike out there or would I have to convert one.

All help is appreciated

Thanks

Gary

Sheldon Brown sells a Bianchi San Jose he converts to Shimano Nexus 8
speed bikes. It sounds like what you are looking for. If you are near
Massachusetts, you should check it out. Here is the link:

For randonneuring I'd choose the 1) SRAM S7 or 2) Shimano Nexus 8 premium/red band/sport hubs.

The Cannondale Street Premium or Rocky Mountain Metropolis might also meet your criteria.

I'd suggest you ride some brevets (randonneuring events) before deciding on a hub gearing system.
