I'm trying to build a 3-speed road bike with an old sturmey archer hub, and everything was going real smooth, until I counted the holes on the hub, and the stupid thing had to have 40. What the hell is 40? Has anyone ever heard of (or know where to buy) a 40-hole 700C rim? I'll even settle for 27, just please let me avoid 26x1 3/8.
Ideally this would be a 40H 700Cx23.
Or can LBS's get non-drilled rims and drill them for me?
Any advice on the topic of three-speed road bikes is welcome.
