    Apples to apples

    I built this hub into a 26" (559) wheel for use on a year-round, all-weather commuter. The stopping power is excellent once the hub is broken in. Far better than I'd been led to believe and I have to wonder if the problem others are facing is that they are using direct pull/linear/v-brake levers with this hub. It must be used with levers intended for either rim calipers or cantilever brakes. I've found the hub to be smooth and the power output excellent. I too had been led to believe that the drag would be noticeable but while I'm willing to believe it is there, I can't feel it.As far as the weight goes... when evaluating this hub you have to consider all of the components it is replacing. You can't just compare this hub to some other hub. Hence the 'apples to apples' title. This hub provides braking and power generation so here is what it should be compared to... for rim brakes: hub, caliper/cantilevers/linear arms, pads, bottle dyno/battery pack.

    Great hub, just a little heavy.

    I built up this hub to use on my utility bike - a 650A wheeled department store cruiser. My main goals were to get a dynamo for easy, consistent light, but I was also excited to try out the drum brake as an all weather brake. Weight wasn't a big consideration, as it's on an old bike, but with all things cycling, it's good to be weight conscious, so the heft of the hub was a little disappointing.Well, the hub built up nicely and was a snap to set up, both wiring for the dynamo and also for the drum brake. It was claimed that the dynamo would produce some additional drag, and it is noticeable when you spin the wheel by hand, but actually riding, it doesn't seem to have any additional drag at all, even when on.The dynamo works well so far, too - it provides ample power for a headlight and tail light, and I've been very impressed with the power and modulation in the drum brake. I opted for the larger, 90mm, drum set up and I really enjoy the confident, strong... 4/5 Scott DeJong (Denver, CO United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Sturmey Archer XL-FDD 36h 90mm Dynamo Drum Brake Hub I built up this hub to use on my utility bike - a 650A wheeled department store cruiser.
