Re: Convert Sturmey FM to 5 speed?
- Isn't the theory of operation for the FM the same as the FW? (To get the
5th high gear would require a bellcrank on the left end of the axle to push
the indicator back into the hub) Therefore the new high gear would be the
complement of the sub-low first gear. You'd still have the 3 fairly close
ratio gears but a super-high top gear. It would make for some funny ratios.
Tell us about it if you do it.
