Default Re: Need advice on "front brake hub"

drum brakes last a really long time, and Sturmey Archer's been in business since 1902. it's a quality product.

i have a vintage Atom hub, made in France in the 60's, and i've only used it for a few months, and it shows no sign of wear. i'm running a coaster brake in the rear, and i hardly have to use it anymore. stops me no problems, and, they look cool.
