Opinions between old SA 3 speeds and new IGH?
I am building up my first designated commuter. I really would like to do it right, but I do not want to spend where I really do not need to spend.
So with that, I would like some experienced comments on old Sturmey Archer 3 speeds IGHs (like off 70ís Raleigh Sports) and the newer fangled Sram and Shimano versions. Because I have an old 3 speed that I would lace to a new rim if there isnít a dramatic difference.
Is there a difference in shifting, reliability, weight, durability?
One thing that I do not like about my old SA is I feel like there is some slop in engagement when start pedaling; has this been resolved with newer hubs?
Also, any suggestions on good, light, and affordable rims?
