Rambler 8 Climbing ability

edited September 2012 in Rambler
From a stop on a climb I'd rate as a 6, I was unable to turn the pedals. I have a Sturmey-Archer hub 8. Is this to be expected? I have an ICE with a Rohloff hub and can winch my way up any incline. This may not be a fair comparison; yet I nevertheless was surprised.


  • No. I'd say: Especially if your legs are strong from riding already, it is NOT to be expected. Are you sure you were down in first gear? If so, then I'd be having it checked by your dealer.
