New SunRace/Sturmey ASC fixed gear 3-speed

I've heard rumors lately that the new SR/SA ASC hub is going to
happen. Those of us who emailed SR about it just got an email asking
for our opinion re: the acceptable amount of backlash in the hub. So
it looks like it's on. That question makes me want to ask Sheldon to
explain what backlash is and ask him how much we want. Please.

I'm guessing that it's the amount of play between you letting up on
the pedals and the hub catching. I've heard that it will be based on
the SRF3 hub: http://www.sturmey-archer.com/hubs_3spd_SRF3.php

And I hope the next question is: what over-locknut should we use?

I hope SR/SA sells a container full here. Who would have ever
guessed that FG would become this big? (those of us who've done it
our whole lives?)
