I think a campaign should be mounted to get Sturmey Archer/ Sunrace to bring back a close or mid ratio fixed gear 3 speed hub. A hub of this type would not only see demand from the limited market of classic enthusiasts but would see a big, growing, youth oriented market among fixed gear riders, messenger types and for fixed gear conversions. It would also indicate that Sunrace was not going to stick to the static S-A market formula which limits the core AW product to being a commodity in the marketplace.

There is potential market growth for internal gear hubs and the company that produces a quality fixed gear 3 speed for less than $150 retail will see strong sales in my opinion.
