Re: Old Sturmey Archer info
- And I found the answer to the GH12 GH8 question:
In "Sturmey Archer: The End and New Beginnings" Peter Reed of Phoenix Hub Gears states that the GH8 is the same diameter shell as the GH6.
So now not only do I have 2 ASCs, 2 AMs, 2 T fixed and 2 KSWs, I have 2 GH12s. But no GH8.
My error was misremembering the NOS GH12 set a private dealer wanted to sell me in the late 70s. My memory was that the hub was huge; the GH12s I have are clearly larger than the GH6 but not "huge".
