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)

36h white front hubs

For the freaking life of me i can find no other white 36h front hub manufacturers other than Phil Wood.

Why the hell are there 32h/white but not a single 36/h white (that aren't stupid expensive)?

Any ideas?

It's standard to use 32 up front except for clydesdales and other specialized applications. Combine the relative lack of 36h front hubs plus the desire for a specific color and you've got a nightmare.

Your best option really is to powdercoat one. It should only be $15 bucks or so.
