Sturmey-Archer Cable Pull
I'm working on a future (winter) project using a Sturmey-Archer 3 speed hub and I don't have one yet but purchase a wheel after the project gets rolling more. I need to know two things that aren't readily available.
1. The length of cable required to shift the hub from:
a. gear 3 to gear 2
b. and from gear 2 to gear 1
2. The force required to keep the hub in the lowest gear (in ounces?)
I believe that the lowest gear requires the longest cable pull, if I'm wrong just let me know. Imperial or metric measurements are welcome. Any current Sturmey-Archer 3 speed hub is welcome (S-RF3, S3X, ab, etc.). Information on S-A five speed hubs are welcome too.
Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
