All-City Big Block Sturmey S3X Jan 14, 2010

The other day I posted about the Sturmey Archer S3X. Three months ago, Sturmey sent Jeff at All-City one of their S3X hubs. The result IS the sex. Jeff laced a wheel up finally and built a Big Block with a barcon shifter. For the rest of the images, you’ll have to check out the All-City blog.

    it’s a lovely little hubs but not quite what everyone will expect it to perform –

    there will be an obvious slight “freewheel” movement when you backpedal a bit, very slight which is normal for those hubs.

    saying that, it’s not a defect and it’s a perfectly normal thing to happen on a fixed 3 speed hubs, I doubt it’s idea for skidding though.

    here’s the one I tried out for a short spin, I do like how it feel when you change gear ratio though.
