    Fixed 135mm hub suggestions

    Project - Cross check fixie. I need suggestions for a rear hub that will be laced
    to a Mavic Open Pro rim. Looking to go cheap, but durable. Any experience or
    comments on the hubs listed below? Any other hubs that I should consider?

    Van Dessel fixed/free
    Surly fixed/free
    Kogswell fixed/fixed

    Thanks,
    Brad

    I have a kogswell on my kogswell. I quite like it. I don't have any experience with the others though I believe that that Van Dessel and the Kogswell are made in the same factory and are internally identical so should yield similar performance. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

    I have a Surly fixed/free. It's a beautiful hub, smooth as butter. TBH, they're probably all about the same quality, just go for the cheapest or whichever takes your fancy
