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)

Velocity High Flange Hub feedback

Hey, I built up a bike recently but didn't get around to building a front wheel yet. I'm going to Montreal on the train and thought I'd build up a new wheel before I go. The only decent front hub I can find or afford is a Velocity High flange hub. On the rear I have a Formula laced on a Alex R390 Rim. My front hub would be twice the price as my rear, (something seems backwards) But I may upgrade down the road. It'll be built up on the same rim, R390, I like them.

Just looking for some feed back on the hub. I checked some forum history, not sure if I found what I was looking for.

If you're in Canada right now, your local Norco dealer can get you a Formula front hub for $35...
