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)

Paul hubs

I am considering these hubs. Any info/openions would help:

For a while I was stuck on Phil wood hubs, but after I found the ones above I seem to like their look better. But I am not sure how well they hold up.

i have a few friends with paul hubs. nothing but good comments about them. my friend beats the crap out of his karate monkey that rides on pauls. he said he's never ridden a better hub. i'm building some sew up track wheels soon and am going to use pauls myself. paul components are top notch in my opinion.

I have no first-hand experience with them either, but think they are, hmmmm, swell. Take a look at this link, scoll down the page a bit, and click on the lovely golden ones:

Yup...that's what I was thinking too. But then, I'd rather have that resurface ad nauseam than Tron Boy's unitarded @ss.
