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)

Dura-Ace/Aerohead

Is anyone running on Dura-Ace high flange hubs with Velocity Aerohead rims? What spoke length are you using? Can't find the flange diameter on DA hubs, and I just ordered the hubs and Velocity Escape rims (same thing as Aeroheads)

look at the shimano track hubs, you should get the right numbers. i used that to build my hb7600 to open pro and the lengths were fine. it was 288mm for 3 cross.

Thanks a lot, The numbers seem a little high, but I hope they're for the hi-flange. I won't have the stuff in hand until next frieday when I come back from Track Nationals, a full build kit is coming in. Super stoked about this bad-boy.

Okay, thanks a lot. It seems a little high, I'm hoping that those numbers are for high flange. I won't have the hubs until next Friday when I come home from Track Nationals, I'm super stoked to be building a track bike finally.

I had low-flange dura-ace hubs laced to aeroheads, until my bike got ******** JACKED.
They were sexy.

No useful info, I'm afraid.

the escape rims are the same as the deep V! not the same as the aeroheads! escapes are much bigger!

EDIT: i am wrong.
