    3 speed fixed gear Sturmey Archer

    http://cgi.ebay.com/STURMEY-ARCHER-U...QQcmdZViewItem

    found this on ebay. it was a 4 speed, they fixed it and now it's a 3 speed fixed hub. im assuming everytime you make an internal hub fixed it loses a gear. i didn't even know there was a 4speed sturmey archer. has anyone done this with 5 or 7 speed hubs or is it even possible? maybe with a shimano nexus 7 speed? imagine 6 fixed gears, more speeds than i need but it's still pretty cool

    BIY $200...find one and DIY.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    Seems like you can do it to get up to a 4 speed:

    But only from:

    The question is how to do it with:

    I can't find anything on it...

    Well yeah, but what's the point of skidding when you've got a perfectly good brake?

    if i had a hub like that i wouldn't want to skid, those things should be preserved. im sure if someone were to turn a nexus 8 speed into a fixed hub they could skid, those things are pretty solid. and it wouldn't weigh a lot considering how many gears your getting. good for touring........

    your perfectly good brake belongs on your road bike.
