Hmm, this might be nice way to cheat. I wonder if it could take more than just beginning cyclist legs?

Shimano SG-7C26 (NEW!)
Inter-7 rear hub 7-speed, w/coaster brake aluminum hub shell

Internal Gear Shifting
Gear shifting action is independent of pedaling. You can shift gears anytime, while standing still, pedaling or coasting.
Heavy-Duty Construction
Rugged planetary and step-up gear sets assure long trouble-free service.
Integral Coaster Brake
Back pedal braking action eliminates the need for a brake cable to the rear wheel.

I have the 7 speed Nexus hub on my Milano, but it uses a brake cable. Not sure of any other differences. The think seems perfectly rugged; I've ridden it up 2500 foot climbs in the mountains (road), and while the gearing wasn't quite low enough, it gave me no problems.

In all but the 1:1 ratio gear, you do get a little ticking noise from the internal ratcheting.
