Sturmey Archer is one of the oldest and best manufacturers of internally geared hubs, shifters and more.
If you are building up a bomber, weather proof commuter bike, starting with a Sturmey Archer hub is a great plan of attack.
Our recommended way of building up a commuter bike is to include a dynamo light system in the front so you'll have battery free lighting, with an internally geared hub that is either chain or belt driven for super low maintenance.
Want custom wheels, but want an expert to build them for you? Give us a call at (503) 954-2039 or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
