New F&S Driving Ring!

A new driving ring for my Sachs Automatic hub!

Last year I tried to get one of these to replace the one I broke. I contacted Jens Hansen at, and got another ring, but it had 10-knobs, instead of 9. That was the first either of us knew that there were two styles.

So… last week I emailed him again, to see if he’d encountered any 9-knob rings, and he had one. He was also willing to take Paypal, which is 10x cheaper than Moneygrams.

Today the part arrived! I was so excited I went ahead and took the hub internals apart and replaced the broken piece. I’ll put up a post about the process in the next couple of days.

So far it looks good – I’m just checking gear inches.
