    Front Drum Hubs

    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?

    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.
