Where the heck do you find...
Where the heck do you find low-flange bolt on 100mm front hubs? Seriously?
I can find high-flange, that's not difficult at all. I've tried everywhere I know. Harris Cyclery, Universal Cycles, Rivendell, Velo-Orange, Performance, Lickbike, even eBay... I mean, COME ON! Does nobody make them anymore? I'm not using the hub off this wheel cause it was the stock hub and is rusted all to h***.
Some of you may know about the project, it's my girlfriends Schwinn Collegiate. I'm already gonna spend enough money on this bike (way more than it's worth, but, she'll never sell it - it was her dad's) and don't want to have to spend $100+ on a Phil Wood front hub (even though it'll last forever) because it seems that's the only low flange bolt on 100mm hub available.
If somebody has one, great, I'll reimburse you, but, any help in finding new would be fantastic.
(I know, I know, I could also just use high-flange and she'd never know the difference, but, I'd like to not have to resort to cheating just in case she ever notices)
