Re: Environmental protestors interrupt Chancellor's speech

To put the gatecrash in a different light who would be pleased to have a similar action at their wedding reception? A load of people descending on your private event to protest because meat was on the menu or because some of your guests had flown to the event. I predict that the overwhelming majori...

Re: Hub gear spare parts suppliers

Thanks Brucey, a route forward.

Digging around I found this Sturmey Archer thread which might be a help to someone else: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=128331&hilit=Sturmey+archer+5+gear

Re: Environmental protestors interrupt Chancellor's speech

Actually it's probably down to her and the police to call it between them. It certainly isn't down to any of us here to decide! (of course it's fun to discuss it - but I do rather feel this one is in a grey area ... ) It all pivots on "unlawful force" - there's a reason he's claiming she ...

Re: Hub gear spare parts suppliers

Hi Interestedcp, Many thanks for those details. Looking at one of the suggested sites this looks virtually identical to my wheel, but I use a trigger thumb changer rather than a twist grip. https://www.retrobikefranken.de/en/Hub-shift--2-bis-12-gear---dual-drive/Sachs-Pentasport-5-speed-hub-1-cable-...

Re: Hub gear spare parts suppliers

Hi Brucey, Some very helpful information, thank you. I’ll try to answer your points. Yes, you’re correct, I’m not 100% stuck on a coaster brake. The coaster brake part of the hub was just how things turned out but, from my riding experience, it’s been a bonus - three brakes are better than one and o...

Re: Hub gear spare parts suppliers

Thank Brucey. I guess that I was being optimistic and hopeful rather than realistic. IIRC (which is in doubt) there was talk in the 1980’s of the two hubs being similar. Perhaps they were, to some extent, but Sach might also have been concerned about accusations of copying, etc., so made required di...

Re: Hub gear spare parts suppliers

My thanks for the responses so far, they are very helpful and have both confirmed my suspicions and given me information that was previously hidden to me (Google is wonderful but for some things it doesn’t give the needed results). The Hub is a Sach’s Pentasport (just checked) I haven’t spotted the ...

Re: Bolt types and sizes

“Are bolts on bikes mostly a standard size. I need to replace a few as I have not ridden for some time (UK)” Screw thread sizes used on bikes are all to standards, but not necessarily standards that are in common use elsewhere. To add to the confusion some threads are also left rather than right han...

Hub gear spare parts suppliers

I have a Sach / Sram P5 five speed internal gear hub with back pedal brake that’s on my everyday bike. It’s been on the bike for a bit over a decade, was second hand when I got it from Germany and is used for say 500 miles per year. Maintenance is oil and thin grease injected into the hub via the ho...
