Question by Uni: I have recently acquired two Raleigh Twenty bikes with Sturmey-Archer Internal-gear Hubs?
Hello, I have recently acquired two Raleigh Twenty folding bikes with Sturmey-Archer Internal-gear Hubs, made in 1969 and 1972. What is the recommended method to shift gears to avoid damage?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Nice. Just reduce stroke/pedal pressure when you shift. You can even shift while stopped. They are almost bullet proof with proper care. I would recommend cleaning and lube if you don’t know how they have been cared for. Here is some good info:

  1. Itsas… answered great.
    I would add that the very small linked chain must be oiled frequently as the tiny chain is hard to replace or fix as a special chain tool is needed .
