    Sturmey Archer FCS 80 single chainset From: Guest | Created on: 25/06/2015 10:09

    I bought one of these from practical cycles about three months ago. I fitted it to a dahon briza 24"  folder, that carried a sram 3 speed hub gear.  Because the Briza used a curved over chain, frame design rather than the usual straight chain stay construction, it was not possible to fit a larger rear sprocket of say 18 teeth because the chain began to cut into the rear stay of the frame.  Replacing the chain wheel of 38 teeth with the 30 tooth Sturmey Archer FCS80 reduced the gear range by about 20% making the old high like the old middle, the old middle like the old lowest gear, and the now new lowest gear at least 20% lower than previously.  The mod was easy to do and was straight forward.  I am seventy two and this was the most cost effective method available for lowering the gear range on this model of the bicycle.  I can now climb quite steep hills that was not possible before.  Recomended   Brendan in Spain.
