I have tried all of my usual internet sources, but I have come up empty.
Does anyone know where I can buy one?
Also, I would think they would take standard cable pull as opposed to v-brake type pull. Am I correct?

Tried Harris Cyclery (http://harriscyclery.net/itemdetails.cfm?ID=813)? They also have one with the dynohub built in (http://harriscyclery.net/itemdetails.cfm?ID=2177)...on my short list of goodies to buy for a certain project I have coming up:D
Standard pull levers required for those I've seen.
The XFDD (the dyno drum Sturmey) comes with a cable that's set for an MTB type lever.
Have been using one daily since December for a commuter. I like both parts - the dyno and the drum.

Thanks so much. I looked at Harris and didn't find anything. I guess I just didn't look hard enough. I wasn't expectiong to spend 70 on it though, as one can find campy record front hubs for the same price. I guess I will disclose the build to ya'll, even though it's not C and V.
IRO Rob Roy Group Buy Frame
Rear Hub: Shimano Silent Clutch Rear Hub
Front Hub: Probably the dynohub/drum hub
rear brake: cantis
campy levers on moustache bars
ther stuff I have laying around, nothing too exciting
On a seperate note, does anyone know some double wall 36 hole rims in 700c for under 30. Plenty of 32's, but no 36's in double wall.
This company builds adult trikes with front drum brakes. Check the replacement parts list.
