Does It Skip?
By
25 Feb 2017
Hi I currently have this hub made by neos triniti and it skips in 3rd gear. I can't seem to solve it and am considering getting a new wheel altogether built up around this hub. I just want to make sure it's reliable! Have you heard of many problems with this hub?
Hi,

Sturmey Archer 3spds are some of the most reliable hubs ever made, this version with the cassette freewheel has more going on so will have a higher risk of developing an issue but we never really had an issues in all of the ones we've sold.

Thanks.
Shifter Recomendation
By
11 Jan 2017
You haven't answered my question above

Which shifter do you recommend for this hub?
Which ones from your range do you recommend?

I have no experience of MTBs, so I'm in the dark about this.

I want to use this hub and use dropped handlebars. If a bar end shifter isn't available, what are my options?

Thanks and regards,
Mick.
Hi,

The reason I have not recommended an individual shifter is that we sell a larger number of compatible options that are all of high enough quality that can be used. Unfortunately as you want to run drop bars it does mean that there aren't any compatible options. The shifters suitable for use with this hub are all either twistshifters or trigger shifters, neither of which can be used with drop bars i'm afraid.

Thanks.
Shifter Recommendation

Which shifter do you recommend for this hub?
I would like a bar end shifter. Do they exist?
Do you do them?

Thanks.
Hi,

This hub is designed to be used with a standard MTB type 3spd left hand shifter usually used for a front derailleur. You would not be able to use a bar end shifter as these are almost always friction rather than indexed so do not have 3 set gear positions which you require for this hub. You will need to use a gear shifter with MTB cable pull and 3 set positions; these will normally include trigger shifters and twist shifters.

Thanks.
Do You Do The Cs-Rf3 In 28H?
By
08 Jan 2017
I would like this hub in 28h to go into my existing wheelset.

Can you get hold of one in 28h?

Thanks.
Hi,

Unfortunately we are not able to get hold of one in 28h as Sturmey Archer Europe only bring the 36h version into Europe.

Thanks.
Can I Get Sturmey Archer Cs-Rf3 Black 28 Holes
By
04 Jan 2017
Hi,

Unfortunately the black version of the CS-RF3 is not available from Sturmey Archer Europe so Sturmey Archer's UK distributor can't order it and as they can't get it we can't get it from them I'm afraid.

Thanks.
Would A Seven Speed Cassette Be Compatible?
By
11 Nov 2016
Hi,

You would need to fit a spacer to allow this hub to be compatible with a 7spd cassette. We stock these and are SJSC part number 3888.

Thanks.

By

Is The Sturmey 3 Speed Barend Shifter Compatible With This Hub
By
08 May 2016
Hi,

The Sturmey Archer 3spd bar end shifter is indeed compatible with this hub.

Thanks.
It Is Listed As 8&9 Speed, Would A 10 Speed Cassette Work?
By
28 Mar 2016
Hi,

8, 9 and 10spd cassettes all fit to the same size freehub body so you could easily fit a 10spd cassette to this hub if you wanted to.

Thanks.
Is It Possible To Have This Hub Threaded For A Karasawa Drag Brake
By
22 Mar 2016
Can this hub (left side of course) be threaded by SJS Cycles to accomodate your Karasawa screw on drag brake?


Regards,

Bart
Hi,

We are not able to thread any hubs in this way I'm afraid and with this hub there would not be enough space to get enough threads either.

Thanks.
Hello Can You Get Hold Of The Black Version Of This Hub?
By
06 Nov 2014
Hi,

We're not able to get hold of this exact model in black, but we do have the disc brake version (RK3) available in black in either 32 or 36 hole options. You don't require a disc brake to use it though, you can build it up into a normal rim and use it with rim brakes if you wish.

Thanks.
Gear Shifter For Sturmey Archer Rf3 3Spd Cassette Hub
By
03 Aug 2014
Hi, I have aTrice Classic recumbent trike, which originally had a Sram Dual Drive 9x3 hub + derailleur gears fitted, but the hub gears broke irreparabl some time ago, so have been running it with ordinary derailleur gears & a cassette hub.
I'm very interested in the Sturmey Archer Rf3 3Spd Cassette Hub 36H, but would also need a gear shifter for the hub gears. A twistgrip shifter would probably not fit, but a lever type shifter would be suitable. What shifters do you have, & how much?

Many thanks!
Hi,

This hub despite being a hub gear actually uses a standard MTB style 3spd shifter, so any normal shifter used for the front derailleur on a conventional geared system will be compatible. So this means any shifter by Shimano or Sram will work fine.

Thanks.
