    Dura-Ace LF Track Hubs

    My friend was able to hook me up with a pair of new low flange Dura Ace track hubs for real cheap and I was wondering if anybody has had experience with them. I know people love the high flange version, and I would have preferred those - but these came at a price I couldn't resist. I am going to build these up to Open Pros and I was wondering if the fact they are low flange is going to make a noticeable difference in wheel strength.

    thanks

    The whole world builds low-flange hubs almost exclusively now, and strength is never an issue. You'll be fine.

    you should have just stopped riding so you could focus on color coordination
