I've got Giant 29" and Brompton 3 speed, Sturmey Archer, 2013(?). I use Brompton to move around the city centre and for short trips on trains. Giant is for long rides across the city and beyond. The last winter I put 16 T sprocket on the rear wheel of Brompton to make it go easier with spiked wheels on frozen roads. Everything was alright. Now, since March, I can't adjust shifting - no matter how I tried, I've got only 2 and 3 gear. I read all the manuals and more, and that's why I'm here! :-)

Hey Alexey,

I've actually been to your city. Many many years ago when I was still in high school (1988). It was a history class trip during our March break. My parents thought it would be a once-in-a-life opportunity to see the Soviet Union (it was and I'll never forgot the experience - we also went to Moscow). Your city was still called Leningrad when I was there. Crazy eh? I always remember how beautiful the Csars' palaces where, and the fact that we were able to find a "Pizza Hut" there, in the Soviet Union!

Cheers mate!

Jeff
