mean a hand off the bars. YMMV, of course.
Not really...

Creaky, Grindy Chain

Probably worth checking the alignment of the power side (upper) chain

misalignment here can lead to excessive noise / drag.

Internal hub gears or derailleur?

Might be worth finding something with a Shimano Alfine 8-spd hub if
you are going to get the bikes mucky, as they claim 'improved
sealing'. (Rolhoff is fine off road, AFAIK.)
Otherwise I can't see...

Another vote for Optilabs. Not tried contacts for cycling -
