    IRO hubs

    Any good? I want something better than Sovos or Suzue Basic, but I can't afford a Phil Wood They're $70 a pair at Harris, but I only need a rear, and he won't sell them seperately. Anyone know who their UK distributor is? Sheldon mentions that axles are not readily changable, why not? Odd size?

    Any other decent 32h fixed/free (or fixed/fixed) 120mm hubs out there for not much money? I'd prefer black and low flange, but it's not imortant.

    yes, indeedy. surly makes affordable, black, low-flange fixed/fixed (or fixed/free, if you're into time-wasting). i got one, and it's been darn good so far.

    Well my 135mm Surly is very nice, I'm sure I could order a 120mm one from the shop I got mine, unless nyone has a 120mm one they'd like to swap for a 135mm one

    I still think you should drop IRO a line. I've gotten really quick replies from them in the past. Their 120 set is only $64 from them, saved you 10% right there. If anybody is going to split up a set, it's going to be them. Try it, all you have to loose is an e-mail.
