Has anyone any experience using an 8 speed internal rear hub? Are they strong enough? Do they shift nicely? Do you have to de-clutch to shift, or can you do it on the fly? I remember my old Sturmey Archer 3-speed when I was a kid, and it always needed adjustment.

Back on topic, think kcvale has the best experience with internal-geared hubs. Maybe he can provide some insight. Pm him if he doesn't pop his head in.
