    What is an Internal Gear Hub???

    Ok, I've searched the web and this forum for the answer I want but can't find anything...I'm relatively new to off road biking but I've been a serious roadie for gentle...

    In the next few months I'll be building up a Surly Troll to meet my off road needs...(it will never seriously touch the road by the way)...

    During my component research I ran across something called an "Internal Gear Hub"...I have absolutely no idea what these are AND how they function on off road bikes...can someone take a little time to explain what they are, how the operate on a bike, and what their advantages would be?

    I literally have no idea what these are...
