I have a bike with a hub made in 94 it still works perfectly..
A Sturmey Archer AW3 hub has every part in it available, when needed ,
SRAM and Shimano, OTOH are weak on small parts distribution.

3 gears are 3/4, 1, and 4/3.. or .75, and 1.33, they don't disengage
the driver and driven gear just change roles.

say I have a 58" middle gear , the other 2 are 43.2, and 77.14..

last spring I got a second IG . its in the cranks, for 6 ratios,
the next lower gear..
is High,in the low range, then 2 lower.
