I am considering getting a bike with an SA8 hub as a gift for someone, but the ones I tried kept slipping gears even after the wrench at the store adjusted them -- several times-- and the people ahead of me in the store also had had problems with theirs.
Just how "trouble free" are the SA8 hubs? Can you weigh in with a vote, yea or nay:
Have you had RECURRENT troubles with SA8? Has yours been finicky? Required a lot of tweaking?
The Sheldon Harris site characterizes the 8 speed hubs in general as bleeding edge rather than tried-and-true.
