So I'm a total bike noob (if you remember my last post ) anyway I recently purchased a Redline Conquest (which has vertical dropouts). What I want to do is build a back wheel with one of those "White Industries Fixed/free" hubs. I was reading their web site and it said that the best way to get proper alignment was with a “Sugino RD crank” with a Shimano 110 bottom bracket to get the "ideal" chainline of 47.5mm the hub was designed for. I'm most likely going with this setup (unless you have any better suggestions) but I noticed that there were some additional options when ordering the hub.
They come on 135, 130 and 126mm. the 130mm says for 9speed and up (the bike would have been originally a 9 speed so that sounds right). and they come in 32, 28 and 36 hole (lost here). so I'm not sure what to get. I still need a rim and spokes but I need to know what to order so. I have an old rim that I think would work. it was a shimano 105 rear wheel but some of the spokes are broken. any advice would be nice, I'd be having a shop actually putting the spokes on.
