Prosquality, smooth ride, easy to like
on my bike this hub does a good job. top quality, straightforward fitting with the kit supplied. the bike feels better, smoother in use than before. the gears have a good spread of ratios. I have big tyres rack and dynamo and the bike rolls along sweetly. I can pedal and it goes now! i got the wide ratio version (38/19 combination) the hub brake is just right and i may try one on the front. my cheap rims are horrible with v brakes but the hub brake works perfectly. the hub is a doddle to set up and i'm very pleased with it. i removed a carrier bag full of bits and have a great set up now.
Some Installation Probs, But Great On The Bike

Consissues with "thick" frames
Prosgreat ratios
had been planning to switch from derailleur to hub gears on my 15 year old converted mountain bike, and an axle break after a particularly salty winter was the impetus required.

i had originally planned on the 8 speed version, but was convinced by dave that the 5 speed would be more reliable for the trailer towing child carrying duties required.

installation was fairly straighforward. however if you have a aluminium frame with even slightly vaguely thick chain stays, be prepared for the brake arm bracket not to fit i ended up using one for a front dynohub instead. also, you should be aware that the brake hardware (lever, cable, adjuster and fend fastener) are not included you'll need to order separately.

now that it's on the bike, though, it's performing beautifully (like having a brand new bike after the rusty derailleur), and the ratios are just what i was looking for (i went for the wide ratio version, with a 34/20 combination).

What Is Included With 5 Speed Drum Brake Rear Hub?
By
19 Oct 2015
Hi,
Wanting to order the following Sturmey archer products:
1. 70mm front drum hub.
2. Rear 5 speed 70mm drum hub.
3. Sls 50 t shifter.

Could you tell me if I need to order any extra cables for the rear hub brakes?
Does the shifter fit on 22.2mm bars?

Thanks and best regards

Tony

Hi,

This rear drum brake hub comes with all of the required brake cabling, you will need to purchase a brake lever if you do not already have one though. The SLS50-T shifter will indeed fit to 22.2mm handlebars.

Thanks.
