  • I have a wheel,but not the shifter,I'll dig it out at the weekend,unless lack of shifter is an issue?
    Also have a Sturmey Archer 8 Speed disc hub with straight bar shifter if that would do ?

  • As long as it is 26 inch I am interested . Let me know . Cheers j.

  • And thanks for replying to my wtb :)

  • Hello Mig , let me know if you have my luck finding your wheel . Thanks Jerome

  • Found the wheel, it is a Nexus(same internals as an Alfine, but non disc brake shell.
    You can get a converter that turns the roller brake fitting into a disc brake which this has.
    Not sure on the rim, black disc brake only.
    A couple of hard to spot hairline cracks near a spoke hole, but is double wall double eyleted so many miles left in it yet.
    32 stainless spokes.
    £35 collected St. Pancras working hours,or I'll post at cost.

    Hey Mig, do you have a link for that?

    My daughter lives in Germany ,she has picked them up for me in the past for a lot less,but I not going to ask her to get one at the moment,sorry.
    If the OP doesn't take the wheel,I'll build the hub into a new rim for rim brakes and use it on an old mountain bike.
    I'll let you have the converter for a lot less than £48😀,
    They must be available elsewhere,it is what all the Arkose hub geared bikes use that I have seen.

  • Sounds perfect . 26 inch rim I assume . Pick up should be fine and get me out :) will update later as shopping for my folks now..

  • Thanks for that, I’ll have a look around the webs.. let me know if yours does become available !

  • Mig
    You have mail .
    Regards
    Jerome

  • I've got a Nexus 8 speed twist shifter if you're interested.

  • @Jeromeo I’ve got a pair of shimano 3x8 shifters for flat bars. Not sure of the series, will check. Let me know if you’re interested!

    Edit: they are STX-RC Rapidfire Plus, SL-MC38

  • Thanks guys .
    Decided to go rapid fire shift on this , new nexus shifters seem cheap enough.
    But someone shout if they a spare one of these.
    Cheers
