    S3X Builds - What are you planning?

    I know I want the hub, but haven't decided on frame, wheels, etc. yet.

    SO....for those you you planning on buying the hub, do you know what the rest of your 3 speed fixed gear will look like?

    I am concerned about hub bearing race/cone quality. I'd probably keep the three speed on my carlton frame.

    Srsly, I scrounged an old [and very heavy, steel] high flange Shimano hub and I plan to use it to build my first wheel so when/if the S3X becomes available I'll have some wheel building experience to draw from when building it up. Yay for self-betterment.


    My hub.
