Electra is getting the picture

I own an Electra Rockabilly Boogy and my wife rides a June. They are great bikes, but designed for light recreational riding. They are a great way to get out and enjoy a summer evening or for zipping down to the local coffee shop for refreshments.
I've commuted on my RBB a time or two, but you're stuck having whatever it is you're carrying strapped to your body in one form or another.
Here is a sneak picture of what Electra might be releasing in 2009. Stylish and functional. Disc brakes? 8 speeds? Porteur rack? I think they're getting it.

Sweet, but an internal hub and fenders would be way better.

I was going to post exactly what smudgemo said. A IGH would suit that bike so much better.

Great minds think a like. While I was actually posting this, I actually typed that it came with a IGH. Then I thought I better check my facts for sure. Good think I did. It seems though when you see a bicycle such as this, it would instictively have a IGH on there. Especially the fact that Electra uses IGH hubs on many of their other geared bikes (including my RBB). It just doesn't seem right. Oh well.
