I’ve got more photos from NAHBS from Saturday, but need make a correction from my last post where I described Jeremy Shlachter’s Gallus Cycles cool rando bike as being “fixed, no brakes”. I was mistaken. I didn’t see the coaster brake lever tucked discretely behind the opposite chainstay. Now I’m pretty sure that he used the Sturmey Archer S2C hub. I really liked that bike with its dual headlights, handmade rack, and wooden fenders.
I also wanted to get back to Steve, who asked for details on the Pashley Clubman.
This bike was built using the Sturmey Archer S3X hub which is a 3-speed fixed wheel hub. Since I’m a bit of a fixed wheel fan, that hub attracts.
Steve asked about the shifter, and the apparent absence of a “travel agent” to help with cable travel issues. I believe this matter is addressed in this case because a SA brand bar end shifter was used. This is an elegant arrangement, and now I’m even more intrigued by the S3X hub.
More photos from my Saturday visit forthcoming.
