    Piece of crap! Maybe not...

    EDIT: Well, it took a while, but Sturmey Archer sent me a replacement hub, so with customer service like that I will have to give the hub a thumbs up and just hope that my first 2 tries were really bad luck. I hope it works out because I love the concept!Original review: Seriously, if reliability is of any concern to you, DO NOT BUY THIS HUB!If you're thinking that maybe I'm some nut who knows nothing about bikes, let me just say that I have been an avid cyclist ever since I had my first tricycle as a toddler. I organize and run bicycle tours in Mexico and cycle a good 10,000km per year. I have also been doing all the work on my and my partners bikes for many years.So... in less than 6 months, I have gone through 2 of these hubs. The first failed when the pawls in the hub stripped, and unfortunately, no one at SA seamed to know how to change these out, so I had to order a new hub. This was with less than 500km on the new wheel. The second hub has... 4/5 Basil Yokarinis (Toronto, Canada) - See all my reviews, October 13, 2011

    Truly a bolt on replacement

    0 5/5 Mike Deal (Parker, CO United States) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Tie Down Engineering 81097 10" GalvX Marine Drum Brake Kit (Automotive) I've been putting this job off for a few seasons now and kept thinking the best way to go was to completely refit the trailer with a set of electronic disk brakes. I could not spend the money though and finally got tired of adding brake fluid every time I took the boat out. These parts came on time and were very easy to install, they were truly a bolt on replacement and what's even more important is that they work! :) 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 7, 2013

    Very solid and well made

    0 5/5 Donnie J. Misino - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Vestil DRUM-HD Heavy Duty Drum Dolly, 2000 lbs Capacity (Misc.) These are very heavy and extremely solid. Probably overkill for my 55 gallon gasoline drums, but well worth the extra cost over the cheaper ones. The steel is thick and heavy, the casters are large and very strong. The locking mechanism on the wheels is very solid as well. The diameter of the dolly platform was a couple inches larger than the diameter of my steel drums, but they still fit on top nicely. Glad I got these instead of one of the cheaper alternatives, they feel like they should last me forever. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 27, 2013

    Micro-generation - Plus

    This purchase was a gamble because I really wasn't interested in what I feared would be extra drag and weight just to power a headlight that I might rarely use. But because I go on occasional bike/camping treks, my hope was that I could get the dynamos' output to charge AAA and AA batteries which I could then use to operate a flash light, tent light, reading light, mp3player/radio, etc., in addition to the bike's running lights. The charger I intended to use - () - supposedly can also power cell phones through one of its adapters.After receiving the hub dynamo (ahead of schedule from Bikewagon), I purchased 4 silicon diodes and a USB cable from Radio Shack and built a bridge rectifier to convert the dynamo's AC output to DC required for the... 5/5 Rolz - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    20k miles on it, going strong; still happy with it.

    I like this hub a lot, particularly for my previous, 10 mile, unlit bike path commute (with Busch & Muller Cyo light - also excellent).Braking: could be better. When new it's pretty bad, but gets better over the next couple of hundred miles. Better than an old single-pivot caliper, not really as good as a modern dual-pivot, let alone cantis, linear pull, disks. Still, quite adequate mostly. Not *entirely* maintenance free - eventually get dirty and water does get in there, at which point braking is not as good and they can even stick on. At worst I had them lock on, when very dirty. Cleaning isn't too onerous, and typically once every 3-5k miles. Braking is quite bad the morning after a wet ride home, as some sort of grime has to be dealt with.Drag: quite apparent when spinning the wheel, not apparent with > 200lb momentum. The bike glides along nicely. It'd be nice if drag was lower, but for the typical <15 mile commute I don't think it's nearly as... 4/5 jimmyfergus - See all my reviews This review is from: Sturmey Archer Dynamo Drum brake Front Hub 36h, Silver I like this hub a lot, particularly for my previous, 10 mile, unlit bike path commute (with Busch & Muller Cyo light - also excellent).Braking: could be better.

    My setup:townie / commuter bikedouble butted spokes700c x 32 Schwalbe marathon plus tiresTrelock LS 875 headlight (pedestrians often say, "Wow, that's bright)B&M Toplight Line Plus taillightWhen I first pulled this out of the box, I was concerned about the resistance of the dynamo. However, after building it into the wheel, the resistance is hardly noticeable when spun by hand. While pedaling I can't tell there is anything resisting me at all. The lights I paired it with give me amazing illumination.I love the brake too. It seems to have less stopping power than the rim brakes I'm used to, but it could easily be that my levers are a poor match to this hub brake. Either way I have stopping power that keeps me safe from running into traffic and still objects when I'd rather not. I can't lock the wheel, but I that would be stupid to lock up your front wheel anyhow.I ride this bike in the rain, and there is no change in... 5/5 Patrick Prescott (Fort Collins, CO) - See all my reviews, October 8, 2012
