I hope all is well.
Anyway I started commuting again and built up a surly cross check.
to save some time and $$ I used some parts from a early 90s falcon road bike Primarialy the wheels.
the wheels I used are 90s 105 ,seven speed hub and campy omega hardox rims. new rims as of 4 years ago both rims are 36 hole.
The seven speed hub is ok but id like a bit tighter range in the mid gears that I could get with an 8 speed im missing one step that would be where I am most of the time.
I noticed on the Harris site that the free hub can be changed easy enough but whats involved with the re dishing ?? is re dishing needed in all cases?
Im a do it your selfer when it comes to almost anything except detail wheel work IE: building ,truing ...
1) leave it 7 speed as there is not much difference, Im whining about one gear
2) install the new "free HUB" to make it an 8 speed
3) new wheels (have to be 36 spoke, 40 on rear even better) use the old whells for the falcon as a single speed project.
its a case of these current wheels are pretty good quality but just a tad shy of what I need.
