3 speed hub
 
I am building a new wheel and can't decide which hub to use. Should I use a nos shimono .333 hub which I checked out on sheldon as to good or bad or a type 3 stermy archer 3 speed with coaster brake which is used?

If the 333 is without the coaster brake, that it's simply a question of whether you want the coaster brake or not.

I prefer the way Shimano's shifter, bell crank, and pushrod adjusts and works compared to Sturmey Archer's shifter and indicator chain setup. The SA has a better reputation for reliability, but I personally never saw many failed Shimano hubs. I also don't like coaster brakes, so I would be inclined to use the Shimano hub.

.333 hub it is. I'll put on my own brakes I just wanted the most dependable hub between the two. The coaster brake wasn't a must. The .333 has no brake.
thanks.
