New Shimano 3 speed hub with disc brake

There is a new gear hub version from Shimano. It´s based on theNexus INTER-3 internal gear hub but comes now with the option for a disc brake mounting. The new 2008 Specialized Globe Centrum Elite IG3 is one of the first (maybe the first) bike which comes with this new hub.Picture copyright SpecializedHere we see a new trend towards modern city bicycles. The manufacturer realize that the benefits of a internal gear hub (Check this post!) are recognized by the end customer. In the last years this kind of city bicycles were equipped with 24 or 27 derailleur gears. More gears were better! Easy marketing.But the end customers have more experience and are better informed. It´s great to see Shimano and Specialized realizing this idea. Respect!I couldn´t find any details on the hub yet.
