Okay, back to bike stuff, and an especial appeal to our brethren across the pond -
First question - since there was a Sturmey-Archer "3 or 4" speed trigger, can one modify a standard 3-speed trigger to operate the FW/FM/FC series 4-speed hubs? I don't see anything in the online information from Tony Hadland, Sheldon and others - any ideas?
Second - there's a good bit of information out there about the Sturmey-Archer ASC 3-speed fixed-gear hub. I note that Brother Hilary S. currently has a Sturmey-Archer TF 2-speed fixed hub. A while back, we had a brief discussion of the BSA DP, a 2-speed hubgear that allowed on-the-fly switching from fixed to freewheel mode.
Is that it for production, factory-original multi-speed fixed gearhubs?
I'll leave aside the possibly OT conversions of AW and other SA hubs, and the Bendix conversions being done (by Bikesmith? Correct me if I'm wrong ...)
