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)

Suzue ProMaxs came in 24h drilling. If you're feeling flushed with cash you can find 24h Carbon fibre hubs, Loose ball and sealed bearing Suzues here (but prices are GBP so its pretty damn expensive)

Campys come in 24h as well (pretty rare and almost as expensive).

i have a fixie lowrider that has the 144 spokes and there isnt even a mm of room left on the rim for another hole..Im pretty sure 144 is the max # of spokes on 20" wheels..if you got hubs that had a higher flange you could probably almost double the # of spokes for a 700c tho..cuz the hubs on the 20" wheels are drilled to hell too, theres no room left on them..you should totally try and show me pictures! it would be the heaviest wheel of all time..unless of course you had like a solid steel disk wheel or something hehe
