    As a follow up, I heard from DT Swiss. They did not give a model number but did say that it was not the type with a star nut and thus was not convertible to a campy free hub (which was my reason for...

    ID hubs on DT1800 LTD wheels

    I've got a set of DT Swiss DT1800 LTD Giant wheels that came stock on a TCR a few years ago. Does anyone know the model of hub? I've emailed DT Swiss but haven't heard back. Thanks

    Thanks for the specific links. I am familiar with Shimano 600, but Suntour is Greek to me. Not much comes up on CL around here so eBay may be my best option. $325 does seem a bit expensive for a...

    Help on a C&V build - Schwinn Peloton

    Higher end Peloton was chrome under paint. My Supersport was not. Great frame by the way. I wish I had never sold mine.

    Campy Brakes

    I've got a full 10 speed campy group for my 86 Schwinn Peloton, minus the brakes. I'd like to stick with Campy for the brakes. What I'd like to know is where the best value is. I don't need Super...

    Thanks for the rec's guys. Lots of good choices to research. I like the idea of those Novatec hubs. Easily switch b/w Campy and Shimano. Sweet. And I have definitely decided on a minimum of 23mm...

    No,by resto mod I meant newish (9 or 10) speed components but keeping the original paint on the frame and new but classic looking wheels. Like record hubs with open pros.
