In the first hour of this workshop the instructor will demonstrate how to disassemble and reassemble a classic Sturmey Archer three speed hub. Students will be introduced to each of the parts, including which ones are most likely to fail and need replacement. The group will go over full overhaul procedures and techniques used to properly adjust the hub and its shifter cable.
During the second hour students who would like to bring their bicycle or specific three speed challenge with them will have the opportunity to try and stump the instructor and/or share it with the group.
Students will leave this workshop with a demystified idea of what's in their Sturmey Archer three-speed hub and the proper tools and techniques for getting in there.
Students should have a basic knowledge of bicycle maintenance to benefit from this workshop. Students must be at least 18 years of age.
What to Bring:
Students should bring their Sturmey Archer three speed to class if they'd like.
“Seven” as she’s commonly known, has learned her bicycle maintenance skills through a combination of Broadway Bicycle School training, and spending inordinate amounts of time around SCUL headquarters (a positive bicycle chopper gang). Seven maintains a small fleet of “normal” bicycles, has built and maintained her own modified bicycles, and she likes to read bicycle repair manuals for kicks. Seven enjoys maintenance best when her SCUL comrades get together and ask her two or three “how do I…” questions at once. She’s also keen on hot yoga, meditation, making electronics go, and treasures playtime with friends.
