    That's going to be an interesting build. I love stuff like that.

    How are you going to run the cables for the IGH and the brakes?

    Yes, you do - $5 extra. Jeremy also laced my high flange Campy hubs for the PX10. As to the SA's:

    "The SA"s were definitely a different build and I have had a good time building them. They really do look good. "

    I'm not sure. This is completely new stuff for me. The brake cables, for instance are double ended with full housings - how do I route that properly or attach to reverse brake levers?
    The twist shifter fits over a MTB sized straight bar but I have bullhorn like bars (though MTB sized). I'm thinking of some sort of stand off 4" bar hanging below the handlebar near the stem.

    Anyone who builds 36-spoke wheels instead of falling for today's reduced spoke count fad is a friend of mine, and 4X is still a great-looking pattern.

    This should be a great set of wheels. I'm eager to see the entire build.
