    Sturmey Archer SS Coaster Brake

    Has anyone used the new Strumey Archer single speed coaster brake?

    http://elitecycling.biz/page.cfm?Pag...ils&sku=HU2211

    (Other folks have this hub too, as wells as QBP, so the above it is not an endorsement, just an example)

    Is it better quality than the KT/Shimano CB hub? Is it a cone clutch like the KT, or a roller clutch like a Sachs/Velosteel, or other mechanism?

    I would love to fit an SS CB on my bike, I just cannot abide the drag while pedaling the KT style hub. After all on the joys of SS is efficiency.

    Thanks.
