These legendary hubs gears have been around for a long time, and are likely to be with us for many years to come, despite other internal hub gear systems being developed. Given the fact that Sturmey Archer have manufactured over 100 million hubs in their long history, it’s safe to say there’s a few of them around! Although they have a deserved reputation for lasting decades, these hubs, like any hub gears, do need some maintenance from time to time.
Our course (the next one runs on Saturday, April the 7th, from 10am, and costs £40) covers a little of the history and theory of operation of Sturmey’s most popular three-speed hub, the AW, in both its original guise and the updated No-Intermediate-Gear version, as well as the SRF-3, before getting hands-on stripping down and reassembling these hubs.
Please note – we’re now asking people to pay a deposit of £20 (which counts towards the cost of the class) to secure their booking, as we’re finding a number of people have been booking places and then not showing up, which is unfair on those others we have to turn away once a class is fully booked.
Payment of the deposit can be made by Paypal (to firstname.lastname@example.org), or via bank transfer to London Bike Hub, sort code 08-92-99, and account number 65441099. Please use your first initial and first few letters of your surname, along with the first few letters of the course title, as your payment reference. We can take the deposit as cash or a cheque as well, if you drop it by the workshop at least a couple of weeks ahead of the course. Cheques should be made payable to London Bike Hub, and either handed in, or posted through the front door in an envelope marked for the attention of Jon Marks at London Bike Hub.
