    Sturmey-Archer Fixed Internal Hub

    A cross post from SS/FG, but damn this could be an exciting thing.

    Sturmey-Archer is considering remaking their ASC three speed fixed gear hub. They just sent me the following email.

    Hello Everyone,

    I would first like to thank everyone for their interest in our upcoming remake of the ASC. As we grow closer to production I will be posing questions on our blog www.sunrace-sturmeyarcher.blogspot.com regarding what you would like to see in the final production model.

    The first question is regarding the acceptable amount of backlash in the hub. Meaning the amount of slack there is before engagement. The original was quite sloppy in this regard but we are interested in your opinion. The question is up now in the form of a poll and if you have a minute and could head over to the blog and add your 2 cents I would greatly appreciate it!

    One bike nut I talked to said it was simple to turn a SA 3 speed hub into a 3-speed fixed gear hub. I never took him up on the offer, but if he's right, that ASC hub better be reasonably priced!

    He's wrong. It's reasonably complicated to turn a SA 3-speed hub into a two-speed fixed hub.

    wow! i hope they make a buttload of them because every goofball with a fixed gear is going to buy them up before us more sophisticated fixed gear folk can buy and use them to their full potential. this is exactly what i need for my hair-brained fixed gear touring idea.
