Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

sturmey fixation

Well im thinking of buying a boring head for the mill, and one of the projects considered within this decision is a sturmey fixed aw, 3 to 2 speed conversion. The plans on sheldons site are a bit too vague for me. Im sure if I stared at them for long enough they would begin to make more sense, but...I am on here to ask if anyone has done this conversion personally? Or even if you have come across a site that illustrates the process, potential hicups, etc...?

p.s.sorry for the error in spelling sturmey, I can't seem to edit the title, mods if you see this, could you?

Focuses on converting an SRAM hub, but also has photos of the parts for the Sturmey-Archer.
