    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.
    Help... please?
    If somebody has one, great, I'll reimburse you, but, any help in finding new would be fantastic.
    Thanks all.

    (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)

    After dealing with their website which runs very slow on my computer, no luck. High Flange only there.
    So, add IRO to the list of places without low-flange hubs.
    Maybe I should just ask her... although, I really don't want to cause I've got two other things she's supposed to be considering that I think I'm gonna go ahead with and see if she notices, cause I don't think she'll ever decide.
    If anyone knows any other sources - AWESOME. If not... will high-flange hubs look good paired with an AW SA 3-Speed? I'm thinking maybe this in silver. Think it'll work?

    Schwinn put high flange hubs on the front of their beach cruisers for a while, it doesn't look too bad actually? The straight lengthened bmx fork they used on the same bikes is another issue however, lol.,,,,BD

    I found and ordered through eBay tonight those IRO hubs xiamsammyx was talking about. I cleared them being quick release with the GF though, although, I know I could possibly convert them to bolt-on. Maybe later.
    Thanks all.
