    Internal hub & salt water

    Does anyone have experience using an internal geared hub and salt water/beach riding?

    I know how harsh salt water is on components but I'm just curious if the hubs are sealed well enough to justify using one. I'm still using my SS fatty on the beach and was just wondering...

    Hope everyone is enjoying this weather.
