SRAM 5 speed hub gear

Postby Phatman » 12 Apr 2010, 10:21pm

Does anyone know where I can get a manual for an old SRAM 5 speed hub gear? The peculiarity about this model is that it has two toggle chains, one on either side of the hub. Thanks

It may seem peculiar but Rohloff do something similar.

If you use one cable/chain then you need a return spring. Use two and you don't need one, plus you can index the gears in the hub (although I'm not sure if your hub does this).

Thanks for your replies guys. They are of help but I'm not quite there yet. I have sent an email to SRAM and will see what that yields!
