let's try this again, I can get a set of the old schwinn xs hubs, the 4x4 for CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP. Did i mention they are cheap? $10 for two hubs.

THats why i would buy a couple of schwinn hubs, and if you look at my other post you'de probably see that i'm looking to build my own wheel, having never done it before and i figured i'm going to do something with cheap parts and then build and expensive one if i manage to pull it off with these on my own.

Schwinn/XS 4x4 hubs were pretty much exactly the same as the original Hazard hubs, and they were damn good, from what I can remember. As usual, FB90's response is a classic case of not knowing what you're talking about.
