Sturmey Archer S2 feedback?
ive read some real bad reviews but those were for the coaster brake version and im interested in the freewheel version for a pompino. Thanks
Is there a break in period?
i couldnt find anything on the SA site. Thanks
I considered the Automatix
but ruled it out b/c you cant control the shifts the way you can with the S2. I do however wish the 138% high gear was the 1 to 1 high gear, instead of the 1 to 1 gear being the low gear. Sure would be easier to set up and it'd be nice to have a climbing gear that you could spin.
Best advice i can give you
as you begin the gearing process is to use the sheldon brown gear calculator. it will save a lot of time.
