    Taga 2.0 cargo bike rear hub problem

    Hi,
    I am using Taga 2.0 cargo bike https://us.tagabikes.com/shop/bike/taga-2-0-basic/ which has Shimano Nexus rear hub sg-3r40, which worked fine for several years. Recently we moved from Texas (almost no hills) to NY state with hilly area. After several trips on hills I got strange noise coming from rear hub - noise is like something like 2 metallic parts are rubbing inside hub. It is getting stronger if I push rear brakes.
    I use Taga bike with my kids, so total weight together with bike must be 300+ lbs
    Is there any way to fix this noise? Is there possibility to change or even upgrade rear hub?
    Thank you.

    Taga 2.0 there are dual disk brakes in front wheels just like my trike,it provide nearly 90% brake of the trike I think, rear brake is not so important, you just send it to bicycle store to fit it when you have free time

    The sooner you take it to a reputable bike shop to diagnose, the less overall damage you will do.
