This technically a 'cross frame and I am not sure if it is a road, errand or 'gravel grinder' build but thus far it is my only IGH.

I put an AW hub on an Atala Competizione but don't have pictures. I sold it before Apple announced the Macintosh.

I've got a ton of IGH builds, (closer to a literal statement than you might think), but only a few that would be close to road bike classification.
83 Nishiki, Sturmey Archer SRF3



Generic frame with Sturmey Archer S3X



Also have a 70s era Sakai with a Sturmey Archer XRF8(w) but I don't have a photo right handy.

Here's a few of mine, including a couple I no longer own, and at least one that I'd be happy to move on!

1940's Fothergill frame; unique FTW Lauterwasser bar, 1939 AW hub with two cogs shifted by a Resilion derailleur, GB hiduminium brakes:


1940 Schwinn New World, with an AW hub dated "0" (now sold, and I don't miss it at all)


1948 Raleigh Record Ace:


1950 Norman Rapide (now sold, and I don't miss it either, since Photogravity keeps posting photos of it almost every day)


1951 Raleigh Lenton Sports, pretty much all original or close:

1960's Falcon frame, esoteric build with a Soma Lauterwasser bar, an alloy AW shell with S5 guts and bogus decals:


1971? Lambert frame, which sports an S3X:


1982 Trek 720, with a Nexus Inter-8 hub:

I do post a lot of pictures of the Norman, that's for sure. I just can't help myself. Here's the Norman with some recent changes.

Hah! Tom, my first DIY commuter was to lace a Sturmey Archer AW hub to a tubular rim. That was in 1983.

This takes me back to three 1970s memories:

1) My Armstrong 3-speed w/ drop bars, an AW w/ 14-16-18-20 Cyclo cog block, a 40T chainring, an early Campagnolo Record derailleur, and a Simplex downtube lever. I tucked the 3-speed trigger just below the left brake handle, to facilitate double shifts. The 39-99 gear-inch range, with only two near-redundancies, was great for general purpose riding and commuting around the hills of west Los Angeles. It would have been cool to convert it to a 40-38 double chainring.

2) My first Bianchi 10-speed, which I rode for awhile as a 3-speed w/ coaster brake, controlled by the original Huret downtube friction lever. This was a fun bike for kicking around UCLA and not worrying about bike theft, which was rampant in those days.

3) The 90-speed (3x6 x 5-speed S-A), 4 shift lever Hetchins touring bike in Charlie Harding's shop in Westwood. I wonder whatever happened to it.

For NLerner's Super Course in Post #8, did this SRF 5 hub come with a bar end shifter, or do you just have to shift carefully without the normal SA shifters?

In. Spire. Ring. All of 'em.

For anyone running the S3X with a freewheel, what are your impressions? I keep going back and forth over whether or not to use an AW, S-RF3 or an S3X for my conversion, but I'm leaning strongly toward the S3X. I like the range and the top gear direct drive of the S3X; it'll give me a top gear that I'm already used to. If I go with that hub, I'll stick with my present gearing (46x15)and use the lower two gears for hillclimb painkillers/I'm tired-and-riding-into-a-headwind gears.

Note: I know that the ASC hub is revered by many, but, from what I've read around the web, it seems that the S3X gets used with a freewheel (as I plan to do) far more often than as a fixed hub. Given that trend, it seems to me that SA has really produced a successor to the AM and not the ASC, in end-use function if not in design detail. Maybe they should ship the thing with freewheel attached and start marketing it as primarily a medium(ish) range freewheel hub that you can convert to fixed, rather than the present pitch as a fixed gear hub to which you can add a freewheel

My 3 speed road bike came as a 3 speed road bike back in 1954, albeit with 597 rims instead of the 700c wheels it now wears and many of the steel parts were swapped for lighter and better aluminium bits.



Keep thinking I would like to build up a really light road frame with a 3 or 5 speed hub... I have so many things in the works it may be while until I do that.

Been running an s3x equiped bike as a daily rider for several years, absolutley love it, I actually prefer to ride fixed over freewheel and the s3x gives me a few gears for when I'm feeling lazy or encounter a climb. The backlash is very pronounced in H but after a couple of miles you learn to deal with it and seems to dissapear under your feet. It's a nice hub when properly set up.

Vintage Sachs 2 speed Automatic in an early Douglas Titanium frame with a Forward Components EBB .. 55/75 gear inch and I modified the hub to shift at approximately 14 mph.. bars are Soma 3 speed ..

What seatstay cable stop do you have there? I want to route a rear drum brake cable through the top tube with a cable stop on the seat stay to run a bare cable to the brake arm.

It's a Sturmey Archer fulcrum clip, I forget what the size is, but I think it's the smallest available. Works great, using them on a couple of bikes.
