Prosreliability, braking, price
I've been using this hub on my cruiser style bike towing a trailer full of camping gear in Wales. It's proven very reliable except on those very few occasions when I've forgotten to take up any stretch in the gear cable (duh!). I especially appreciate the larger size drum brake which won't overheat as much when towing the trailer down long descents. The 3speed trigger that comes with it might look plasticy, but again seems to be perfectly positive in action and reliable. It's easy to fit a different sprocket to raise or lower the range of gears.
Questions & Answers (3)
Which Of The 18T Sturmey Archer Sprockets Would Be Compatible?

SJS Customer Service:
Hi you need our part 19347 or 27162.
What Gear Shift And Sprocket Is A Good Match For This?
04 Dec 2015
There are so many to choose from :)
I am interested in a sprocket that will make for easier hillclimbs.
SJS Customer Service:

All of the SLS30 3spd Sturmey Archer shifters are compatible and suitable for use with this hub, you merely need to decided which type of shifter you would prefer. The larger the rear sprocket the lower the gear, so if you're looking for a low gear for hill climbing, something like a 22T sprocket may be the best option. One of these would be SJSC part number 19337.

How Much For A 700C Wheel With This Hub Built In Please?
02 Dec 2015
SJS Customer Service:

We offer wheel build options through our website; just select one of these options based on what spokes you would like (the price for the wheel build option includes spokes, nipples and the labour to build it) add it to your basket along with the hub and the rim of your choice and when we get the order we will build you the wheel and send you a full finished wheel. Remember to match up the number of spokes correctly though so for this hub you'll need to select a rim and wheel build option with 36 spoke holes.
