Does anyone have any experience of using the Sturmey Archer rear drum hub X-RDC, need a new rear hub and wonder if this may be a solution.

It looks like it might work, I take it you're replacing an Arai drum brake, make sure it's wide enough for your dropouts.

We have an old Thorn tandem, I fitted a Karasawa drum brake bought from St.John Street Cycles, this is their offering to replace Arai brake. It seems to work OK, have not done any steep descents with a load on, but it does the job. Hope this helps.
