    Sturmey Archer shifter compatibility?

    i have a X RD8 rear hub and it comes with some ugly gripshift. does anyone know if there is any triggers shifters or thumb shifters that will index correctly with it. i didnt even call them because i am sure they will say there is none.

    Do you have an XRD8 (2002-2008) or an XRD8(W) (2009- )?

    The only factory shifter is the TSS82.

    Jtek makes a bar end shifter for drop bars. I've used one for the last two years and the shifter and the hub [an XRK8(W)] are great.

    Thats the stock shifter I have, and it dosent fit the build well.

    I have a new hub I bought this year. I will check the numbers. I was hoping there was a SRAM or shimano that would index.

    Thanks for the tip.

    Just emailed jtek and they are also working on a thumb shifter version of the XRK8(W)... currently under test.

    Hi John,
    do you have the cable pull for 3-speed-hubs, too. I have got a SRAM I-Motion 3 hub, but wanted to use thumbies, for examaple the nice Sturmey Archers SLS30 T3.
    What do they mean by "classic ratio"?
    Thank you
    Best regards from Germany
    Rainer
