Sturmey Archer S - RF3
For quite some time I've been a fan of Sturmey Archer hubs, my father's 1947 Humber sports has it's original hub which is a 3 speed with a drum brake and it's has never let me down once while riding even on long tours. So when a customer of mine with a Fuji Feather CX ( single speed cyclo cross ) wanted more gears and the ability to ride faster I recommended the Sturmey Archer S - RF3 hub which is a standard 3 speed hub which allows you to choose whatever size rear cog you need . i then laced the hub into a Salsa Delgado cyclo cross rim with is a very well made rim available in 32 or 36 Hole with eyelets for added strength. In this post you can see a couple of photos of the rim and hub in the wheel truing stand.
