I don't think you could have easily switched to a hub in a Speed 7 frame. And 7 gears are plenty if they're spaced right. I'm a big hub fan myself, and would recommend getting one with your next bike...

I can't believe they're still sending those out with those Mickey Mouse 46 T integrated cranks. Anyway, you're getting a great frame, and can upgrade crank and bottom bracket later, if desired....
