source(s) for 126 mm rear hub ?
Thanks for the feedback on D-A 6 speed freewheel vs. cassette. My inclination is to go with a freewheel rather than cassette.
So the next step in this thought-experiment is to get the parts for my new rear wheel. It seems the rims are a no-brainer, most folks like the mavic open pro's. But I am having a hard time finding new, gently-used, or NOS rear hubs. There are a few on ebay but not many.
Any ideas or suggestions on where else to look for a good quality 126mm hub that will accept a freewheel? It does not have to be dura-ace necessarily, although I wouldn't mind. To be extra picky I would prefer 28 or 32 holes (I only weigh 150 so I think I can get away with 28).
And ditto for the freewheel...not many on ebay either! I know nashbar has a twist-tooth sis-compatible freewheel but I want a 13-21 not their 14-24 or 14-28. Suggestions?
