I'd like to outfit my bikes in ways that minimize the effects of rain. A non-coaster-brake "dutch bike" type of component array on a "hybrid bike" would be nice. I don't know how to obtain something like that in the USA though. Dynamo lighting. Internally-geared hub. Braking that avoids the water. The bikes by Workcycles cost a lot and aren't really the type of frame geometry that I'd want (there are too many hills where I am). So what can I do for this preference?

Other aspects to mention for this bike:
I said "hybrid bike", meaning bikes that fit the industry category of this name. I would go with any common wheel diameter that's bigger than 24" though. And bar-end or downtube shifter would be fine for me.
I think I'd prefer a cro-mo frame/fork, rather than aluminum or hi-tensile steel.
