What are the advantages of an IGH over a traditional cassette?

Traditional cassette is the typical chain and cassette setup that you see on typical bikes. IGH or an Internal Gear Hub takes the gear mechanism inside a sealed hub,

  • Traditional cassette is exposed to natural elements and prone to debris, rusting and breakage
  • IGH is sealed and requires less maintenance and can be more reliable over usage
  • IGH design is cleaner, avoiding any collision with other bike parts or legs of the rider while also making it easier to upgrade to belt drive
  • On the other hand, hub gears tend to make it harder to remove the rear wheel or repair the hub on your own
  • IGH do tend to be more expensive
