Fixed Three Speed?

The inestimable Sheldon Brown reports that Sturmey-Archer (now owned by SunRace) is considering making a new three speed fixed hub. Multispeed fixed hubs used to be common back in the golden age, but for a long time now the only way to get one would be to pay a $mint$ on ebay, OR to convert your own from a freewheeling internal geared hub. A new production model would be a good thing. If you think so too, tell Sturmey-Archer at: info(at)

I told them, and hinted that to me, the penultimate hub would have at least one of the gear choices freewheel.
