    maintaining an IGH

    I am the proud owner of a IGH hub bike.

    http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...=#post11407490

    It's a sturmey archer 8 speed, though I'm not sure exactly what model hub it is.

    Tips on maintaining this thing?

    I put a few drops of oil into my AW3 hub, occasionally ,
    I just took the axle cones out and greased those bearings, last month.
    It was a used bike..

    "When man first set woman on two wheels with a pair of pedals, did he know, I wonder, that he had rent the veil of the harem in twain? A woman on a bicycle has all the world before her where to choose; she can go where she will, no man hindering." The Typewriter Girl, 1899.
