TAIPEI, Taiwan (April 23) – Sturmey-Archer hub gear production is recommencing this month and first deliveries are expected in June in Europe. Due to the high demand new owner SunRace anticipates that it will be August before all hubs from the old Sturmey-Archer program will be freely available. The Sturmey-Archer production line has now been installed in the SunRace factory in Taiwan. This has been supervised by 3 ex-employees of Sturmey-Archer Ltd. who have ensured that quality standards have been maintained or improved. The external appearance of many hubs will be modernized and some new gear controls will be introduced. Sturmey-Archer branded chainwheel and cranksets are being added to the range so that complete drivechain sets can be offered. Following very positive customer reaction at both the Taipei and Amsterdam bike shows, SunRace have now set up a Sturmey-Archer division within their company. This means more technical personnel will be dedicated to the Sturmey-Archer range. (JO)
