If your Sturmey Archer 5 speed rear hub is having trouble with shifting or making noises you may need to adjust it. Follow these instructions for the steps on how to do so.

Step 1

  1. Shift to Gear 1
  2. Shift to Gear 5
  3. Shift to Gear 2
  4. Examine the two yellow lines on the right side of the hub. 
    • If the lines are not lined up, continue to the next step.
    • If the lines are lined up no adjustment is needed.
  5. Turn the knob on the shifter where the shift cable exits - circled in the previous section. After 1-2 turns shift to gear 1, then to 5, then back to 2. Then Repeat Step 4.
