That's SunRace, not SunTour. Totally different company. If you send 'em those pictures, I have no doubt they'll send you whatever parts you need or a new hub.

Ah. I thought they were the same. I have written to Sunrace in Taiwan and sent them the photos as well, and referred to the exploded diagram in the manual to which part I need for a repair.

The sprocket ratio is 42x25. Tyres are 406x50.
