the multispeed will help the pedaling for sure, they can be pedaled fairly good still but there is a noticeable amount of resistance.

If you get a mutispeed bikethat has a small spoked wheel you can always upgrade it later on to a wheel that has larger spokes, Ive put many miles on wheels with 14ga spokes using the kit supplied "rag joint" sprocket coupler, they do a good job but the clamshell manic type adapter is by far the best way to go if at all possible or use a rear wheel that has larger 12ga spokes and you wont ever have and trouble either way.
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
