    Very interesting... T.O. Alleycat!

    Hey cavernmech, since you're the wheel-building god around here, do you know if Shimano still produces the high-flange version of their Dura-Ace track hub?

    I've been seeing them on the interweb and they look damn cool! If not, then are the low-flange versions pretty good, compared to the likes of Formula, Phil, Surly, etc...

    Thanks.

    I'm good for any date after Aug 5th to return to the velodrome, if its the 6th I may be horribly jet lagged but I'll still come out.

    If there is a CV tonight I'm totally down, same with an alleycat I've often wondered just how much slower I am then the pros. It'll probably be horribly embarrasing but atleast I'll know.

    Oh BTW thanks everyone for awesome pics/vids definately made explaining the 'drome madness easier to less bicycling inclinded folk.

    The old Dura-Ace track hubs with the blue band on the flange are no longer in production. You can still find em if you look for em. I had a pair many moons ago and while VERY nice they are not the best choice for street use. Campy and Dura-Ace use loose bearing design's which require regular and frequent re-packing if you use them in inclement weather. The new style Dura-Ace small flange set are sealed a little better. I have a pair of these but they are on my track only/pimpin wheelset and see very little street use. Most of the other hubs on the market use cartridge bearings and are a much more durable and maintenance free choice for street use. That being said the Dura-Ace's spin like budda!

    yeah, for sure, go nuts. i guess it should say something along the lines of "toronto fixed gear / single speed" or whatever.

    Mmm... budda...

    Yeah, I saw this pic on the web and grew instantly in love:



    Hmm... maybe I'll buy me some Formula hubs, since they have a fixed/fixed version, they're more durable, maintenance-free, and cheaper, but still a smooth hub. What do you think of Suzue hubs? Or do they still make them?

    i only posted the photo of the cog as an example; the original image was pulled from the PW website. perhaps TJ can remove the phil-related text if we choose to use that image.
    the american apparel shirts would be cool.

    Suzue went out of business; surly makes a double fixed that is cheap and works well.

    Suzue Promax "Disco" hubs are quite nice...if you can find em. As Jeremy pointed out they are no longer in bi-ness.

    If you have your heart set on fixed/fixed then any of Formula, IRO, Surly etc are decent and very similar. If you are o.k. with single fixed I would go with the Miche instead. They use a 6001 bearing which is substantially bigger than the 6901 that the others use and the price is pretty much the same.
