Sturmey Archer (Contains Old School Content)
Took an old Sturmey Archer 3 speed hub apart today.
It wouldn't select first gear, so I stripped cleaned and rebuilt it with Sheldon's help, and despite the enormous amount of rusty shoite that came out everything cleaned up alright (except a pawl spring - now on order) and the thing works again
How good is that? Built in May 1984, years of neglect and abuse, and it can still be repaired, and spares are still available - love itThere is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate tyres
