Re: First post/ SA X-RF8(W) owner
Welcome to the group. It sounds like you have used the group resources well, thanks.
One thing I have noted about IGH owners is that they are generally not brand fanatics, other than some older SA owners/users ;-) generally speaking. This is in contrast to high end camera and telescope owners as well as some car enthusiasts.

I have owned and ridden a 1960s-vintage 3-speed IGH Raleigh since the mid-70s. For my first IGH bike-building project I selected a Sturmey Archer X-RF8(W). I will post my experience with my Sturmey Archer X-RF8(W) in a future post.
