Dacon hub-derailleur converter

Posted: Monday 21st September 2020

Author: Bill Ives

The Dacon converter is a driver which replaces the Sturmey Archer driver and dust cover. It takes Suntour New Winner sprockets so there is a good range of potential sizes. It will take three sprockets with a standard axle and four sprockets with a long axle. There is a piece about the Dacon in Tony Hadland’s Sturmey book in which he implies it was in production in 1985.
