Use without drum brake functionality
16 Nov 2018
Dear Sir, Madam,

Would it be technically possible to remove the drum brake parts and just use it without that in a road bike with caliper brakes?
We would not know specifically but are pretty confident you would be unable to do this.

Thanks - 20/11/18
Do You Sell The Sturmey Archer 8 Speed Inner Cable?
10 Jun 2017

Sturmey 8spd shifters actually use a standard Shimano type inner gear cable so any cable of this type will fit. We recommend the Shimano ones which are SJSC part 3053.

Can You Supply A Gear Cable And Anchor Set For This Hub
12 Jun 2016
Sturmey Archer part no: HSJ 973

The full cable sets aren't yet available in the UK I'm afraid, the parts can be purchased separately though. The cable anchorage is the same as used on the 8spd which is SJSC part number 19307. The inner cables are supplied with the shifter and the outer cables are the same as standard derailleur outer cables.

[urgent] Hub Weight
26 Feb 2016
I want to buy this hub.
But this hub weight is very important for me.
Please let me know this hub weight(not include drum brake weight).
Weight: 2290g is including drum brake weight, it's right?

The drum brake is part of this hub, it cannot be fully removed. You can remove the brake shoes but this is not the the drum brake itself. The 2290g weight is for the full hub and all of its fittings.
