Yeah, uh, I think you're thinking like a derailleur user.

Sturmey hubs adapt to a wide range of OLDs. The famous AW3 can get into 110mm OLDs and the very same hub - with spacing nuts on the axle - can go into a 130. You adjust the chainline with spacers and dished cogs. I bet the S3X will work the same way.

HTH,
