I didn't know all of that. Thanks!
Is Phil Wood still making freewheel hubs in the correct spacing? I guess I'm asking if I'm better off converting to a freehub? I could still lace up 27" wheels if I wanted to. I assume the only real difference there would be the length of the spokes used.
I'm still a bit iffy about lacing up a set of wheels myself. Brought my copy of "The Bicycle Wheel" to work w/ me today to try to gird my loins to have a shot at it.
