Hello friends of Three Speeds! Just a reminder that our first workshop, the Sturmey Archer Hub Rebuild Workshop, is just two days away! This class will be taught by expert mechanic Patrick Loftus, who has overhauled many an AW hub in his day. It will be held at the Community Cycling Center (1700 NE Alberta St) on Wednesday April 24 at 7 pm.
Patrick will open up an AW hub, dismantle it, and reassemble it in working order during this ninety minute workshop. Participants will learn about lubing and adjusting cables while learning some theory and history. Bring your own three speed as we may be able to help with adjustments. Please note that this is otherwise NOT a hands-on workshop.
Limited to nine people. Price: $20 for Society of Three Speeds members, $25 for non members, plus service charge.

Hello friends of Three Speeds! What are you doing on Saturday April 20? No plans? Why not join me and other three speed enthusiasts on the Three Speed Day Tour? We'll be riding about 30 miles from inner SE Portland, down to Oregon City (Willamette Falls! Municipal Elevator!) and then back to town. This ride is open to anyone with an internally hub geared bike of three, four, or five speeds.
Saturday is supposed to be a BEAUTIFUL April day, sunny, high 65F/18C. A great day to be outdoors. Why not be outdoors on a three speed?
There are still spots available. Registration is required. Full details and how to register via link in profile.
