I rechecked my work.... the first hub I posted is the only one for the rear. So that's your only option from QBP. It's fix cog only btw. There's many other vendors that bike shops have access to however. QBP kinda stinks for Track stuff.

it would be awesome if i could find something flipflop, but i suppose single sided will work.
its for a customer, and he'd demanding 28h front and rear.
oh well...
**** luck.
haha

Just throwing this out there.... I really f'ing doubt a LBS is gonna say "go check out Nashbar, they got some good deals!" It doesn't say it's for a customer till later in the thread, but again... just sayin. Support your LBS!
