Hub Site That May be Old to Some?
- A friend sent this to me, he's considering upgrading his Dutch Batavus from a 3 and was looking over their information. I did a quick message search, if I missed previous postings please excuse.
The newest post on the blog was a year ago.

I upgraded it from a Sachs 3 speed to a Sachs 5 speed.It was a bit of a PITA but it came together eventually and has made my bike more usable on the hills.I swapped out the 3 speed with 18 tooth cog for a 5 speed with 22 tooth and got an extra couple of lower gears, keeping the top end much the same.3rd for gentle rises or headwinds, 4th a lot of the time and 5th for the downhills.
