Sturmey-Archer Hub is finally here

The co-op got their order in and my hub was among the schwag.  I brought it home with me just so that I could show my daughter.  She will be excited and this is the missing piece of the puzzle.  Now, with the assistance of the fellows at the co-op I can begin to build the wheel.

I am glad I went with the coaster brake.  For a ten year old (my daughter) I think that this will be a more solid and reliable stopping option.

It is heavy, probably 5 lbs., but it's a cassette, derailer and brakes all in one little, slick package.

  1. Congrats. I'll bet it'll work very well. Can't wait to hear how the wheel-building experience goes.
