fietsbob replied to the thread Shimano Nexus 4-Speed Hub - Blocking the Freewheeln.
" S3X is .. 1:1 for high, .75 and .63 for second & low yes those are the lower 3 gear ratios same as 3/5 ths of the 5 speed.

the driver splines are also threaded so a freewheel can be screwed on later, if you change your mind & want a freewheel hub again. "

fietsbob replied to the thread changing 7S to 8Speeds on a 3S internal rear hub - I'm confused (as usual).
"
If it's a standard Shimano fit, the body itself is a direct swap.
but its not, its the extended driver of a 3 speed IGH. that is made to use Shimano/sram cogs on it. "
