    Nexus Hub

    Hi MotoMagz,
    The Nexus is good. I've used the 7 spd and the 3 spd many times. The 7 speed is nicer. Also used the Sturmey Archer 3 speed and it is fatter than the Shimano Nexus 8 speed and I have to get the sprockets specially drilled out in the centre to fit over it. I got a 54mm diameter drill specially for the Nexus 7 speed but the Sturmey 3 speed is over 60mm diameter which is pretty ridiculous really.
    Sorry I'm late replying - been away for a while.
