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)

Crankset and Hubs Needed Suggestions Opinions.

Imma need some new hubs pretty quick.
dont want dura ace or campy, so they are out.
looking at paul components hubs as they are pretty nice, and a hell of alot cheaper than the phil woods.
also interested in the Chub Hub? anyone have experience with this?

Im pretty sure I am going to go with the Black Omniums, or somthing comparable at a comparable price point?

lacing them to CXP 33s. I despise the stupid heavy deep V rims (Hplus Son, Deep V'z).

let me know what you think, and what you would do.

No one can give you advice on what would work best for you and your bike with absolutely no info on either thing.

I'm about 3ish" shorter than you are, that frame will actually might be my size.

Thanks for the offer but I have to pass. As much as I appreciate vintage frames, I'd have to put pretty decent components on a Colnago, don't really have the fund for frame + new components right now.

to fixed van it goes then.
the problem is I got a such a good deal on that 'nago, and even though it doesn't fit me I feel like I cant just sell it to anyone, I need to find either a friend or someone really deserving.

Thats a good deal on those Srams, but I am putting all my spare $$$ right now for the frame. I wont be getting a crankset until december at least.

You could try to trade your frame for crankset + hubset if you are really lucky.

I really like your frame but it's way too flashy for me.

yeah me too. I guess thats what comes with having a 90s italian steed. Oh well. If I dont sell it I will keep it until I find someone who really really deserves it.
