I have a 700c rim that has a tcw 3-speed coaster hub in it. I hate it (shifts great, stop poorly). I have what appears to be a nearly new 1956 ab 3-speed drum brake hub that I would like to replace the tcw with..........
My questions are:
*Is this a good idea?
*Will the ab perform well in the braking department?
*I don't have the attaching hardware to the ab. I think I have the cable handled but do I need to attach the arm to the frame securely like a coaster brake arm? If so which stay?
*I have read I need to use anti rotation washers on the axle. If so do they need to be on both sides of the hub?
*Do I only need one per side?
*Which way should they be installed? Between the dropout and cone locknut facing outward or against the axle nut facing the dropout?
*And finally........Got pics of your setup? If so I'd love to see it!
Thanks in advance for advise given,
