I've built a new wheel with a brand new Sturmey Archer 8 speed hub X-RD8(W).
The first lasted about 100km before losing the bottom 4 gears. The shop replaced it under warranty. The second has only lasted 60km before jamming in 4th, 6th, 7th and 8th. I've now dismantled this hub before returning it and found two small pawls have broken off.
Has anyone else had experience with this hub or am I just unlucky ?
