i need a 3 speed wheel, with matching front, in 26". I have a 3 speed Sturmey-Archer 3 speed I just bought,a pair of nice aluminum MTB wheels with stainless spokes. The hub was bad on the rear,so I tried to lace in the SA, but its hub was too large to use my spokes. Im fed up.
Make me a deal,or what have I got to sweeten the deal? Frames?I'd buy new spokes, but ya gotta be an engineer to figure out the spacing/dimensions to buy the right ones the FIRST time.GRRRRR
I have a lightweight Shimano 3-speed set. Front regreased and everything cleaned up real nice. I have a shifter that'd go with it too but it didn't lock into gear very well. I'd do 25$ plus actual shipping if you were interested.
It'll rub out.
I have a nice set of 26" wheels with the rear having a working 3 speed archer hub with all the parts and cables/shifter...shifts great...I would sell both rims and and shifter for $95 shipped....let me know if your interested either way and thanks!
yes, PM was sent to ya.
I am AGGRAVATED!!!The spokes came in, I relaced the hub, and the spokes are still too long. I am fed up, and done lacing. I want a set of wheels with a 3 speed hub. plus I have the 3 speed I bought available, if anyone is interested.This frame will be painted, and I still wont have wheels for it!UGGGHH
Are you lacing them cross 3 . or cross 4 ? by changing the the pattern the spoke has further to travel , I've taken front wheel spokes and used them to lace a 3 spd
i keep a bumch of old spokes so if u wana lace something to something u can use the old spokes to find out the length u need the first time u may have too longof a spoke then tery a smaller length till u fing what u need then buy your new ones and lace it up
iv been lacing whells since i was 10 years old i just laced a nd rear end in a 700 wineman rim and a nd front hub in a weinieman 700 chucksoldbikes
I have a 3-speed sturmey archer rim, that works, and a matching front rim, they came off a 69' Schwinn Racer
here is the rear rim, would include front rim also.

It's better to burn out, than fade away.
so, aftyer months of messing with these wheels and the SA 3 speed, I have them DONE!!! After some input from dogdart, I used some nuts as spacers in the wheel, and spaced the nipples. The wheel is trued, and tires are mounted, and on the old Galaxie of mine. Gotta route the shifter, and take it for a cruise!.
