Three Speed Fixed Hub Finally Here
Although there are several "fixes" to convert old 3-speed hubs to being fixed, Sunrace Sturmey Archer has finally released photos of a legitimate production model. What we know: The first batch of prototype Fixed Gear 3 speeds is finished. The new hub will be called the S3X. The hub will be made using a strong aluminum hubshell. Shifters are still up in the air but there has been a lot of interest in a bar end style. Overall gear range will be 160%.
1st Gear -37.5%
2nd Gear - -25%
3rd Gear - Direct Drive
