Hi all

Anyone have a working Sachs/Sram 3x7 hub preferably in a 20" wheel but loose or different wheel size considered ?

No problem if it does not have the shifter's or spokes/rim need attention etc as long as the hub is sound.

regards Paul

Paul - I think I have one of these, a hub that isn't built in to a wheel.  No shifter, rest of it may be there.  I'll have a look in the bike shed (aka the spare bedroom).  Does this forum have a private message function?  If you send me your address I could post it.  Other question would be what price you have in mind?

Did this get sorted?
Funnily enough, that is exactly what I need as my 3x7 hub has lost the ability to change the hub gear.
Many thanks
Philip

Hi there

Hub still hear , no progress made in lacing it into a wheel I am afraid.

I though these hub's were considered bomb proof and only failures were from the cables ?

They may be bombproof, but I lost the toggle chain, and none of the bike shops I have tried seem able to reconnect it. I am sure it is the right part as I have bought two identical parts from different sources.
Best wishes with your wheel!

Hi there

Did you buy Sachs/Sram chains ? and have not been sold Sturmey Archer chains ?

That was my first mistake but I am pretty sure that these are Sachs/SRAm - they certainly aren't the same as Sturmey Archer.
Thanks for the thought!

Philip

Ok couple questions ?

What do you mean by lost ?

Is it possible it snapped leaving some of the thread in the change rod threaded hole ?

Do you want to send me one of your chains so I can try it in my 2 hubs ?

I will send it back.

How far are you from Mansfield ?

I hadn't thought of that, but I suspect you are right, because I can't locate a hole when I poke around with a spoke.  The hub is now with another bike shop and I am encouraging them to dismantle it.
Thank you for the offer anyway.
Best wishes
Philip
