I've done some searching and didn't quite find the answer. I have an opportunity to buy a pair of Shimano 600 Tri-color hubs for $50 in very good condition complete with skewers. The rear is a cassette hub. I'm assuming this is a Uniglide body. Is that correct? If so, I would want to convert this to Hyperglide, right? Is that an expensive or labor intensive operation?
I would want to use an 8 or 9 speed cassette with a 30-32t large cog. I would build these up with Open Pros or other high-quality clinchers and DB spokes.
Is this advisable or should I just look for another hubset?
