Help! I need a Sturmey archer axle for an ASC hub. I've heard/read that it's the same one as the AC,FM and FC.

anyone have a lead on one of these. Mine has stripped threads.

I read that S-A is thinking about reintroducing the ASC hub. Go to the source and see if they have a replacement axle for you.

I can supply a replacement axle - cost would be $35 including shipping.

The early/mid '70's Grand Jubile was, I believe, an underrated bike. The main frame tubes are Reynolds 531 and it came with a Stronglight crank and headset, Weinmann centerpull brakes, Pivo bar and stem and an Ideale 80 saddle. In '76 it was offered with either Huret Jubile or Suntour GT derailleurs.

The GJ was below the Team Champion, Le Champion and Grand Record in the lineup. Nevertheless, it is a very nice bike.

any ideas on where I can get ahold of a early ninetys seven speed cassette, with the smallest cog itself being the threaded part? it's for a shimano 600 hub, and the diameter of the spindle is smaller than modern cassettes.
thanks

Are you talking about the threaded portion of the hub, where the cassette screws onto? It's smaller than on most wheels?

I think you mean a "freewheel" and Nashbar has 'em.

Those are the original uniglide cassettes and they are not available. However, a good mechanic and easily and cheaply replace your cassette hub body for a newer Hyperglide body and you can use new 7 speed cassettes. See Sheldon as \usual...

Sorry, not the original Uniglide but the later Uniglide. You still swap out the "freehub" or cassette body.

yeah I knew that my description of the problem was kind of out there, but I think that you got it warren.
i took the wheel in to about four shops, all the mechanics just shook thier heads, includeing the older guys.
I always forget about Sheldon.
this wheel is 17 or so years old and still by far the newest thing I have. thanks, jason

Now there is an older version - probably early 80's or so - that isn't compatible with anything. Where the freehub body threads onto the hub - it's smaller. I mean it's smaller. Like on most threaded hubs - you can remove the freehub and you could actually screw a track hub onto the threads. Well, these have such a small diameter - much smaller than the thread diameter of a track cog. There's not you can do in this case - unless you could find another one of these freehub bodies. I had one - but unfortunately destroyed it trying to remove it.

just looked at sheldons page on the uniglide to hyperglide conversions and saw that the uniglide cogs are reversible, that is they can be flipped exposing the unworn side of the tooth. Im going to give that a try and save the swapping out for a later day, like springtime. after all, this is my winter bike and its winter now... thanks again, jason
