The new Sturmey Archer 3-speed "FIXIE" hubs are in stock!!! Part # SU-S3X(color)/120 or 130 (over locknut dimension) Color: S=Silver, B=Black, G=Gold, R=Red. Going fast! We burned through the 120mm units in a little over a week, still some 130mm units left. Next shipment due in mid-May.
We have a new database system that shows up-to-date in stock/out of stock info. Also we've introduced initial credit card approval upon placing your order.
Now, the bad news: when we changed to the new live database, much or our secondary descriptions and illustrations got lost in the shuffle. I will be restoring those as fast as I can.
The other bad news: sometimes the system will reject an order due to an address mismatch, etc. And sometimes that's a result of faulty records at the bank.
If you are having difficulty placing an order, please call us at 541-482-0222, Monday thru Friday, 9am to 4pm Pacific time.
IMPORTANT NOTICE for OUR CANADIAN CUSTOMERS.
The Customs forms are backing us up even more, as some of you have already figured out!. To save time I will no longer offer options in shipping methods. All our Canadian orders will go out USPS International Priority Mail and the shipping charges will be added.
IMPORTANT NOTICE for OUR COMCAST USERS
We are having difficulty responding to Comcast E-mails. We can receive them but when we respond the message doesn't get there and even worse, we don't know for days whether the mail got rejected. Please use another E-mail address if you have one and/or give us a daytime phone so that we may communicate with you.
Long known for three speed hubs Sturmey Archer make some other interesting hubs. Take a look. Eight speed hubs have been redesigned and available. New wider gear ratios and soon: 90mm drum brake hubs with highly polished alloy hub shells. In October we will be featuring the NEW S3X 3-speed FIXED GEAR HUBS, in colors, no less!!
We have added many Sturmey Archer repair parts (hundreds!). This will keep most of the older hubs like the AW and the 3C running for years to come. Sturmey Archer has technical diagrams with part numbers at this web site:
