    Union Bicycles - anyone?!?

    Hiya all

    I've purchased a Union "San Remo" through eBay(.com.au - yepp i'm an aussie). Great bike, 5sp Sachs Gear Hub with drum brake, Sturmey Archer "steelite" drum hub up front. Plus a busted shifter!!!! Having much difficulty finding one, so i'm considering re-wiring back wheel with a SS hub and fit a caliper.

    Any suggestions on what hub i should use, anyone had any experience with these "Dutch" bikes(this one was privately imported).

    Thanks in advance

    Wazza

    i really like my surly hubs. they're sealed, use enduromax bearings, are inexpensive, and come in a variety of sizes.

    BMX hubs?

    Thanks for the "Surly" recommendation. Geographical limitations are my problem, i live in Australia, we can get surly stuff, but usually it's "on the next order". BMX hubs are plentiful(Dirt jumpin n freestyle is quite popular in my city). Just need some advice on what to look for in compatible widths/brands etc.

    waiting on more advice, particularly plain english advice on how to determine correct width hub. help an aussie out folks, all the extra gravity we have in the southern hemisphere makes us slow

    cheers
