Sturmey archer 5 speed shifter
Sturmey archer 5 speed s5 2 internal shifting 5 gang
This is for a unique 5-speed rear hub manufactured by Sturmey-Archer in the late 1960s. On either side of the rear hub, one cable was used. The right-hand cable, which operated like a normal 3-speed hub, was managed by the broad white lever (pulled on the little chain that came out of the right side of the axle). The red lever worked a lever on the hub’s left side that pulled on a pin that protruded from the axle’s left side, providing the extra low and high gears. The following was the operation: Low (1) gear: red lever back, white lever back; 2nd gear: red lever forward, white lever back; 3rd gear: red lever forward, white lever middle; 4th gear: red lever forward, white lever middle; 5th gear: red lever back, white lever forward; 6th gear: red lever back, white lever forward (3rd gear will operate in either position with the red lever.) This shifter’s rear hub is possibly extremely rare these days.
Sturmey Archer is another well-known cycling company, best known for their internal geared (planetary gearing) hub.
Since its inception, the company has been purchased and sold many times, and it was once owned by the same parent company as Brooks and Raleigh.
The company is still in operation (or at least the name is), and internal geared hubs bearing the Sturmey Archer name are still manufactured today.

I have a Sturmey-Archer shifter that controls a hub with five speeds and cables on both sides. These 5 speed transmissions with two cable shifters are extremely rare, and my shifter broke as seen in the picture. Since only the shifter’s brace broke, I was wondering if I should buy only that part or what the best way to keep using this shifter would be.
According to Sheldon Brown, the 5 Star and 5 Star Elite w/drum brake cable 5 speed hubs were produced in 1991-1992 in a freewheel and drum brake combination. These hubs have the following functions, according to him:
The shift control units were the weak point of the 2-cable 5-speed hubs. In first gear, the S5 required a taut cable to keep the primary sun gear from disengaging from the axle. Sturmey-Archer experimented with a variety of top-tube mounted shift levers, none of which were mechanically satisfactory. Even though there was no real issue with the hubs, the left-side cable needed to be balanced quite carefully, and the actual mechanisms of the click stops in the two-lever controls were too slow, making them very inaccurate.

Hello, I’ve been working on a Mission trike for a friend who is disabled. However, it is equipped with a Sturmey Archer 5 speed hub, which Mission has been great at supplying quickly and efficiently. It’s an alloy shell, but since it’s on a trike, it’s a remote device that drives to the axle through a link chain. Since the trike isn’t that old, Misson isn’t sure what brand the hub is; the only writing I can make out on the shell is ‘Sturmey Archer,’ and everything else is rubbed off. It has a twist grip shifter and a blue band around the indicator rod. I’ve tried different adjusting methods based on advice I’ve received, but no discernible difference in gear ratios (but no slipping) has been seen. It has a window style wheel nut on the rod side. So far, I’ve attempted: Adjusting cable tension such that it is taught while the shifter is in first gear, resulting in complete shifter movement but no gear changes. In 2nd, I adjusted it so the blue line is level with the end of the axle, but the friction was too high in 3rd, and I couldn’t get the shifter to go through all gears. I believe there is an internal problem, but if that was the case, I would have expected it to just spin in some gears? Also, until I’m certain of the differential method of adjustment, I can’t tell if there’s a problem on the inside. Is it possible that the predictor is incorrect? How can I say if I don’t know what hub it is? Anyone have any suggestions? Please accept my sincere gratitude. Terry is a man with many talents.
