Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

36 hole components

We're ordering new, high fllange track hubs and we're wondering if there's any interest in 36 hole stuff.

If there is interest, then we'll have Kinlin deep V rims with 36 holes as well. Wheels too.

yes, for the love of god, yes. Considering how many of us are above the two buck mark, the prevalence of sub-36 stuff is amazing. I just ordered some 40 hole phils for one of my bikes.

36h is way too comon to not have any hubs in that size. plus a lot of of 27" wheels that people convert come with 36 holes. also some heavier riders/and tourers prefer more spokes to compensate for the load

You can't lace 3-leading 3-trailing with 32h or 28h. Do it.

I dunno, man, I don't see Kogswell getting NJS certified any time soon.

It'd be kinda nifty if I was wrong, I guess, but then he'd have to octuple his prices.
