Sturmey Archer SW Hub versus AW/FW
For those into Sturmey Archer, I've put two brief videos together. One demonstrates the sound of a late model SW hub (the final version from 1958) and a 1956 FW (four speed version of the AW) hub. You can hear that the SW is not silent, but is still considerably quieter than the FW/AW.
