    The only disadvantage of a flip flop hub is that you can't put a different cog on each side. They are as reliable as double-sided track hubs.

    It isn't the fact that you have levers that bugs me. It is what kind of lever and where they are positioned that bugs me. Why are you using mountain bike levers on a road bike? I can't see your...

    The disk brake will be way more of a hassle than getting long calipers. Converting it to fixed isn't going to make it magically less heavy or clunky but if it fits and has horizontal dropouts it may...

    Go with the top tube length. Standover height is not important. Double check your fit on the fit calculator just in case. There is something funny going on with the wheelbase that maybe...

    If I see a used NJS frame for $500 it typically is very used, i.e. bent, scratched, dented, and on sale because the hipster trust-fundy who bought it in the first place has moved on to collector axes...

    I strongly doubt there is anything about the hubs. My guess is that if you are destroying bearings on the soma's you'd destroy them on any other sealed bearing hub. It's possible you just had bad...

    NJS is a standard that bikes have to meet to race in Japanese Keirin races. They are standardized to that riders don't have an advantage over one another so there is a minimum weight for example. ...

    That definitely sounds like an improvement over the lungavita. I felt like it was marginally nicer than say a fuji classic track at the time and it was very "roadish" which may have been a turnoff...
