Does the drum brake use a lever or is it backpedal ?

Thank you for your enquiry, it will use a lever to operate.

Can this hub use 8 speed sprockets, or only the C50 ones?

Wheel build
03 Apr 2021
I'm trying to buy and have the parts in my parts list but want to have them built into a wheel. If I pay at checkout they will be sent, not what I want. How do I go about it ?
Sorry, we are not currently offering wheel builds.

Can this be supplied as a complete 26" wheel and what would it cost?
31 Mar 2021
Not currently as we do not offer custom wheel builds- for this you will need to buy the hub and rim and find a wheel builder to make it into a wheel.

Thanks, 31.03.21

Is this hub a straight swap for the old XRDS-5w please.

Pashley sovereign 28inch wheel.

This is one of the new rotary shift hubs, so whilst it is technically the replacement for the XL-RD5(w) the dimensions differ as does the required shifter and sprocket.

Providing your frame is capable of taking a hub that has an OLN of 135mm then you should be fine to fit this hub to your bike.

Is This Hub Compatible With The Hsj960 5 Speed Shifter
05 Jun 2016

I'm afraid this shifter is not compatible with this hub. The new rotary shift hubs need to be used with the rotary shift specific shifters.

Hi, unless stated in the description the hubs will be supplied with the parts necessary for the hubs to run correctly. Regards
