Default Re: Sturmey Archer

just done 10.000km on old second hand 3 speed 'sturmer archer copy shimano hub' used as a gearbox for a 31ccm gx honda setup and apart from the first gear giving up after 6500km i am suprised about the abuse it handled. but in a comparison of all gearhubs for sale on a website (Hubstripping : Internal geared hubs / Nabenschaltung / Getriebenaben / Versnellingsnaven / Moyeux a Vitesses / Vxelnav / Il cambio nel mozzo / El buje de cambio de alto rendimiento / Invendige gear nave go to 'the internal gearhub review') it looks like only the rohloff can handle permanent hard usage.set it up, use your gearhubs and if they brake put another or stronger one in because you have done the setup allready.
