I rode a bike with a Sturmey Archer S3X hub last night. It was really nice. I noticed a little lash, but it shifted smoothly and I could imagine enjoying fix-gear riding more if I had one of these. I have no plans to get one though.
This photo is not flopped. The drive train is on the left side of the bike. Cool.
I got this chance because I returned a couple frame straightening tools I had borrowed from Bikesmith Design. Mark (Bikesmith Design) had recently assembled this bike and allowed me to ride it.
I'll post photos of my straightening work soon.
