    I have a topic that I would be interested in hearing which is better and why. I have heard that some people prefer the stormy archer (sp) 3 speed rim better than the shimano 333? Just wondering what you guys think.

    Both are pretty bomb proof, but the Sturmey has a weak link (pun intended) in the indexing chain. Shimano is quieter but some like to hear the "click, click, click" of the Sturmey.
